Mother Monster has arrived!
Gaga just dropped her new song, "Stupid Love," one month after the unofficial version surfaced – they sound identical.
While promoting the new tune, Gaga sneakily placed the word Chromatica on her marketing material. Little Monsters suspected that was the album title, and they're right. Gaga confirmed the title in a Tweet and the "Stupid Love" music video.
She also opened up about the forthcoming album in a new interview with Zane Lowe.
Chromatica drops April 10.
"The symbol for Chromatica has a sine wave in it, which is the mathematical symbol for sound, and it’s from what all sound is made from, and, for me, sound is what healed me in my life period, and it healed me again making this record, and that is really what Chromatica is all about. It’s about healing and it’s about bravery as well and it’s really like, when we talk about love I think it’s so important to include the fact that it requires a ton of bravery to love someone," Gaga says of the album title.
"BloodPop [who executive produced Chromatica with Lady Gaga] brought it up, and we talked about how Chromatica was essentially on its own when you first look at it, it seems to be about colors and all the different colors and also music is made of a chromatic scale, you know? So it’s all the colors, all the sounds, you know, so we, we’re talking about inclusivity and life and also a lot of what we see around us and what we’re experiencing is math, which is very much like music and and sound is math as well. So we talked about that, and then I sort of went back and I said, “OK, well, yeah, it’s inclusivity but it's really a way of thinking,” you know, it's not just, “Oh, Chromatica, we’re being inclusive with all the colors, all the people,” and when I say, “All the colors, all the people,” I mean way more than we could possibly fathom."
"I think that we’re actually operating on a completely rudimentary level where we square things off into very simplified colors when actually we’re all extremely different in a vast variety of ways that stem from both, like, genetics as well as epigenetics, like, we’re all completely different and I thought OK, well maybe, Chromatica is a frame of mind. And that is my frame of mind, and I don’t know that I’ve ever made an album that wasn’t on Chromatica in some type of way, meaning like my frame of mind is always a part of my music, and this is just my way of kind of expressing, even in a both literal and abstract way, that, like, making music and putting it out into the world is my perspective on life, and it’s also my gift to the world in the best way that I can, and I think that everyone on any given day is doing the absolute best that they can do, and this is my perspective, and here it is, and it’s always been my perspective, but now I know that it was my perspective."
Hits Daily Double claims Gaga will soon share tour dates.
A music exec working on Gaga's new album, Gina Zimmitti, posted then deleted a photo of her in a recording studio with the caption:
“🙂🙂 smiles all around! @whiteseamusic wrote & @amiedots orchestrated some beautiful string and brass arrangements for @ladygaga highly anticipated album! #LG6 is set for an early 2020 release. We love these talented ladies!! 🤩”
A mid-April release date might be in the cards.
DJ White Shadow, who worked closely with Gaga on Born This Way and ARTPOP, says he's heard the new album and called it genius.
"I actually am not working on LG6," he told E! News. "I sat this one out. I've heard it. It's not my art to share with you, but I can tell you this, [as] with everything that she does, it's genius. I'm excited for her to put it out. I think that it's really good."
At one point, DJWS was working on LG6. He described the record as ARTPOP's little sister, but Gaga has since shifted gears.
Grimes also showed the project with praise.
