The good news? Lady Gaga‘s gradual return to pop is underway. The bad? It’s probably not coming this year.

Following the somewhat mixed public reaction to the “Applause” singer’s 2013 studio album ARTPOP, Gaga opted to explore alternative musical opportunities and demonstrate her versatility as an artist with Cheek To Cheek, her 2014 foray into jazz with Tony Bennett.

But in case you haven’t already noticed, she’s been quietly prepping for a return to pop.

Not only has the singer hit the studio with longtime collaborator RedOne, but she recently stole the show at the 2015 Academy Awards with her stunning homage to The Sound Of Music and got the world fired up with her American Horror Story: Hotel announcement.

In a new article about Gaga’s latest reinvention for Billboard, Bobby Campbell, Gaga’s new manager post-Troy Carter as of 2013, reveals that “all of the singer’s current projects have been in the works for the better part of the last year, or longer.” That being said, both Campbell and Gaga’s label (Interscope) confirm to Billboard that “new pop music isn’t likely until 2016.”

So unfortunately, it looks like Little Monsters will be waiting a bit longer to hear Gaga’s grand return to the pop scene — for now, anyway.

What do you think about Gaga’s slow-but-sure plan to return to pop? And how do you think the public will respond this time around? Sound off in the comments below.
