Madonna has shared another new single off her upcoming album Madame X (due next week), "Dark Ballet," and this one comes with a video starring Mykki Blanco as Joan of Arc. Via press release:

"Dark Ballet" was inspired by the story of Joan of Arc. "She fought the English and she won, still the French were not happy," Madonna says. "Still they judged her. They said she was a man, they said she was a lesbian, they said she was a witch, and, in the end, they burned her at the stake, and she feared nothing. I admire that."

The powerful and moving video, directed by Emmanuel Adjei, stars the innovative hip-hop queer pioneer, Mykki Blanco as Joan of Arc and tells the story of the kind of dance we're all dancing in the world right now, this dark ballet. The video closes with an important message of inspiration from Mykki, "I have walked this earth, Black, Queer and HIV positive, but no transgression against me has been as powerful as the hope I hold within."
