Lady Gaga spends her evenings entertaining audiences around the country on her Joanne World Tour, but behind the scenes she’s been working on her sixth pop album.
In an interview with EW, Gaga revealed that the next record is “in the early stages of conception,” adding “I’ve started writing.”
“I have a lot of ideas and a lot of things I want to create, so you’ll see in a bit. I need some time to create,” she said.
Fans can rest assured that new music (possibly from LG6) will premiere at some of her upcoming shows, but there might be a waiting period.
“This show’s actually extremely complex and complicated, and the stage is coded with a computer. It’s intense and the cues all have to be met at a particular time. It’s high stress and tense backstage to make sure everything happens at the exact moment it’s supposed to,” Gaga said. “So, the setlist might change a little bit, but mostly you’re coming to see a piece that we’ve created for you. It’s two hours and fifteen minutes we’ve thought about very closely. It’s from our heart, and it’s from a band, dancers, artists, and everyone we’ve worked with in the 10 years we have behind us together.”
When Gaga was spotted at recording studios earlier this year, reporters speculated she was working on a new album. Those sessions could have been for a new album, but they might also be when she recorded “The Cure” or music for her remake of A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper (in theaters next year).
On September 22, Netflix will add an exclusive documentary to the service titled Gaga: Five Foot Two. Filming took place over the course of a year and includes private moments in her career and personal life.
“I’m alone, every night, and all these people will leave,” Gaga says in a clip from the documentary. “They will leave and I’ll be home alone. I go from everyone touching me all day, and talking at me all day, to total silence.”
