Lady Gaga‘s most recent album, Joanne, just came out late last year, but she’s already looking ahead to her next release.
Gaga tells Entertainment Weekly, “I’ve started writing.” Asked if she plans to release another single from Joanne or move on to the new album, Gaga says, “I’ll let you know. 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.”
As far as any new music being premiered on her current Joanne world tour, Gaga says it’s somewhat unlikely, due to the nature of this particular show.
“The stage is coded with a computer. It’s intense and the cues all have to be met at a particular time. It’s high stress and tense backstage to make sure everything happens at the exact moment it’s supposed to,” she tells EW. “So, the setlist might change a little bit, but mostly you’re coming to see a piece that we’ve created for you. It’s two hours and fifteen minutes we’ve thought about very closely. It’s from our heart.”
On that topic, Gaga says no matter what the public thinks of her work, she’s 100% behind it, because she has to be.
“You have to be sure about who and what you are, and have that be the most important thing,” she tells EW. “If every time somebody has a comment about what to do or makes a statement about your work, if you shift as if the wind were blowing, [then] you have no perspective or spinal cord as an artist.”
She adds, “…when I make my work, there’s a reason and I think about it and I love it, and that’s what matters.”
The Joanne tour runs through December 18.
