Universal/Interscope in the US has announced a recall of the Blu-ray edition of Madonna’s new ‘MDNA World Tour’ film, after an “error in manufacturing” on copies of the disc in the country impacted on sound quality.

In a statement, the label said: “Due to an error in manufacturing that has compromised the 5.1 audio in the US, a full recall of the Blu-ray disc will be issued in the US. No other markets will be affected. We apologise for this inconvenience”.

The issue was raised in the singer’s recent Reddit AMA, in which one user asked her about the problem, suggesting that it had also been an issue on European copies of the release.

Madonna wrote: “I’m absolutely horrified. My label is looking into it… trying to get to the bottom of it. It might be a case of old technology not working with new technology. Please be patient”.
