Somewhat out of the blue, Madonna has released a new video for her track "Miles Away" off the "Hard Candy" album. 

A compilation of performances of the track from the icon's worldwide "Sticky & Sweet Tour" that uses some stop-motion footage that recalls the "Ray of Light" video,  the release of this music video now seems a bit odd.  Is it to hype up interest in her already mostly sold-out tour dates overseas this summer?   Perhaps she was bored and found herself futzing around in the editing room?  It's unclear. 

The still fanatical after 50 singer will release a greatest hits album which is rumored to include new tracks , her least Warner Bros. release, in September.

Is the "official" video for "Miles Away" worthy of having the Queen of Pop's seal of approval?  Watch and share your thoughts below.
