Just over two months since the release of her long-awaited sixth studio album Chromatica, Lady Gaga is giving her fans further insight into the album's making with a new radio show on Apple Music.

Every Friday on her new show, GAGA RADIO, the pop superstar will speak with the DJs and producers who inspired the dance-flavored album and helped bring it to life, celebrating the genre of dance music in the process. Each episode will also include an exclusive DJ mix from one of the guests.

"The last few weeks I've been figuring out different ways at home that I can be of service to what I would call the singular global community, one that I believe to be kind in nature, one that I believe to be very special to my heart and I believe to the hearts of many," Gaga said in a press release. "And so I've been thinking of all the ways that I can be someone that contributes to the society and the world. I'm super thrilled, excited to have this show and this opportunity to play an incredible mix of music every week."

On the Aug. 7 premiere episode, Gaga will catch up with Chromatica executive producer BloodPop to chat about the making of the album as well as the challenges of self-doubt and depression that often accompanied the creative process.

Check out a preview clip below -- in which the two discuss why releasing the album felt like "an exorcism" -- and tune in to the radio show on Fridays here.
