Man arrested in Spain over Madonna song leak

Spanish police have arrested and charged a man with illegally leaking an early version of a new Madonna song.

The 31-year-old is alleged to have put a demo of Gimme All Your Luvin on the internet in November.

The investigation began after lawyers traced the recording to Spain. The man, described by police as a big fan of the singer, was arrested in Zaragoza.

Madonna's first studio album in five years is due for release in late March, with the first single out next month.

Police have not named the man arrested, but confirmed his initials as J.M.R.

Officers in the northern Spanish city said they found recordings of the song in a search of the suspect's belongings.

Madonna, 53, was said to have been "very upset" when the song first leaked last month.

Her manager, Guy Oseary, tweeted about the incident and asked fans to help police any further leaks.

The singer's upcoming album, her first since 2008's Hard Candy, has already been completed and will be released as part of a new three album deal with Interscope Records.

It was also recently announced that the star will perform during the high profile Superbowl half-time show on 5 February.
