Good news, Little Monsters! It seems like just yesterday Lady Gaga released her fifth LP, Joanne, marking a brand new phase for Gaga and becoming the fourth chart-topper on the Billboard 200, surpassing the half-million sales mark in the U.S. Gaga is currently on off her Joanne World Tour, but that hasn’t stopped her from already thinking about the next album.
From the sounds of it, Gaga fans may not have to wait long for LP6. Gaga recently hinted to Entertainment Weekly that she’s already working on new songs: “I have a lot of ideas and a lot of things I want to create, so you’ll see in a bit. I need some time to create.”
In the interview, she mentioned that there’s very little chance the set list will include much of the new material due to the intricate stage setup for each song, but she’s not ruling out that possibility: “That’s not to say I won’t do songs here or there that I can call during the show.” In addition to sharing details about her two-hour-long performances in the new tour (multiple stages! strobe lights! pyrotechnics!), she also discussed the importance of her fans on and off tour.
“What has bonded Little Monsters and I together, since the beginning, is spreading a message of love and unity and acceptance to the world, so as the years have gone by, we’ve all grown up and changed, but it’s our values that stay the same,” she said. “It keeps us strong. No matter what happens in our lives, in my life, the world, we always have that common ground and value system that we care about. The Joanne World Tour so far has been really exciting for a lot of reasons, mostly to reunite with my fan base and feel that love they bring every night, and I pray that multiplies.”
While we wait for the new album, Gaga also has an original Netflix documentary hitting the big screen called Gaga: Five Foot Two, coming out Sept. 22. The documentary shows fans a new, personal side of Stefani Germanotta.
