Madonna's latest single is here and she's still intent on showing people that girls just wanna have fun.

Coming a few weeks after her cheerleader-driven romp through a mythical high school where everyone only knows the name "Madonna," the singer's latest age-defying preview from her forthcoming new studio set, "MDNA," positions the 53-year-old pop icon behind a cutting-edge electro dancefloor beat.

"I got that burnin' hot desire," she sings early on in "Girl Gone Wild," which seems to be about, well, a girl going wild, "and no one can put out my fire." Later on, however, she seems to regret losing control ("It must be the Tanqueray," she sings, "I'm about to go astray") and muses over that idea that she "shouldn't act this way," but concludes that she's a "bad girl anyway" and, presumably, gets back to the Tanqueray.

Penned by Vancouver native Jenson Vaughan and produced by dance music trendsetter Benny Benassi and his cousin Ale Benassi, Madonna recorded the track in London. "She loved them." Patrick Moxey of dance label Ultra Music told Billboard.com last week. "Benny is such a quality person; I think that made it all flow so much easier." Benassi and Vaughan are both signed to Moxey's label.

"MDNA," Madonna's 12th studio album and her first since 2008's "Hard Candy," is due in stores March 26. Her world tour behind the album continues to grow, kicking off May 29 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and continuing through November.
