A man has been arrested in Spain over allegations he leaked a demo of a new Madonna single onto the internet. It’s not clear how the man, described by Reuters as a “Madonna fan”, got hold of the demo to start with, but police say they found copies of the recording in his possession.

As previously reported, Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary said the singer was “very upset” when the demo of ‘Give Me All Your Love’ surfaced online last month, adding in a Tweet: “Madonna told me this morning ‘my true fans wouldn’t do this’… whoever is responsible for this leak, we ask that you please stop! I’m very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song!”

The Spanish man, identified only by his initials by police, was charged over the leak and then bailed. As previously reported, Universal’s Interscope is set to release Madonna’s new album in the new year, her first since 2008, which will include the finished version of ‘Give Me All Your Love’.
