Lady Gaga’s stint on American Horror Story: Hotel has influenced the tone of her next album. “The show has really affected my voice,” Mother Monster told James Franco in an interview for V Magazine’s Spring Preview Issue. “There’s a tremendous freedom and a recklessness, but there’s also a sophistication in the show. There’s a lot of liberation, but it’s a very chic liberation.” As such, LG5 will be a lot lighter than ARTPOP.

“When I wasn’t working on the show I was truly miserable because I had no safe house to get out any of my vices,” the 29-year-old explains. “Now I have a safe house for my vices so when I’m making music I just have a lot more clarity. I have a little less of an instinct to be reckless with my music now because I’m reckless in other places. So now I’m thinking more about what it is I want to say and what I want to leave on Earth.”

“It’s less an expression of all my pain. There will be some of my pain on the record for sure, but it will be more than that,” Gaga continues. “My last album was riddled with a ton of pain. That whole record. It’s almost like you couldn’t even get to what it is. Now, the show gives me an outlet to put things somewhere, so when I get to the piano I’m in a deeper place already. I have something completely other to explore.”
