Lady Gaga Confirms Her Fifth Album Will Arrive This Year
Last night (January 10) marked a major career moment for Lady Gaga, as she took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress In A TV Movie Or Limited Series for her work in American Horror Story: Hotel. The singer was in such good spirits, in fact, that she revealed a post-ceremony tidbit about LG5.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer confirmed backstage that her anticipated fifth album will be arriving this year. “You know, I am putting out an album this year. I won’t tell you when!” she told reporters. Mother Monster was also asked if her style will change along with the new music: “That’s a difficult thing to say as I don’t know that you yet know what I will look like for my next album, as I’m still creating all of those things. It’s something that is a gradual change always with me.”
“What was nice about playing The Countess is it reminded me that in my own life and in my music, I’m always — at times — playing a character, and I become them fully. And living inside of her was liberating, I’ll tell you, because she doesn’t give a sh– about anything,” the artist continued.
Lady Gaga has been teasing her 2013 ARTPOP follow-up for months, as she reunited with producer RedOne in September and worked alongside Nile Rodgers and Mark Ronson on the new project. In the latest issue of V magazine (where she is the guest editor), Gaga stated AHS:Hotel made an impact on her musically.
“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 in the interview. “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.”
