Lady Gaga’s new album is coming sooner than you might think. Gaga just unveiled the release date on Instagram on Wednesday, and it’s only a few weeks away.
Lady Gaga’s sixth album, “Chromatica,” was originally slated for release on April 10, 2020. The first single from the album, “Stupid Love” debuted back in February.
Of course, the situation has changed a lot since then, and Gaga opted to push back her album release so she could focus on raising money for COVID-19 relief instead.
“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right for me to release this album with all that going on during this global pandemic,” Gaga wrote in a statement to fans at the time.
Lady Gaga helped raise almost $128 million for frontline health care workers with her benefit concert, “One World: Together At Home,” featuring the likes of Elton John, Taylor Swift, Stevie Wonder, and Gaga herself.
Though the pandemic rages on, it looks like Gaga is ready to focus on “Chromatica” again. Fans have been waiting almost four years for the album, which is the singer’s first full-length project since 2016’s “Joanne.” Gaga already released the official tracklist, and the new album will feature cameos from fellow powerhouse pop singers Ariana Grande, Elton John, and the K-pop group Blackpink. There are 16 songs on the album.
Now, fans have a firm release date to look forward to. Gaga wrote on Instagram: “The journey continues. You can officially join me on #Chromatica on May 29.”
Gaga has yet to release another single from the album since “Stupid Love.” She did, however, release the cover art for the album, which you can see on the website to pre-order the album.
