Lady Gaga has finally announced the title and release date of her highly anticipated sixth album.
Chromatica, a 16-track album executive produced by BloodPop and Lady Gaga herself, will be unveiled to the world on April 10.
Gaga’s Little Monsters had already speculated that the album might be called Chromatica, after the word was featured heavily in the music video for the album’s lead single, ‘Stupid Love’.
In an extended interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, when asked about the meaning of Chromatica , Lady Gaga said: “it’s about healing and it’s about bravery as well, and it’s really like, when we talk about love I think it’s so important to include the fact that it requires a ton of bravery to love someone.
“I think what I’ve learned is that I can view the world in whatever way I choose to see it, and it, it doesn’t mean that I’m deleting the bad things, it just means that I can reframe my life experiences and reframe also the way that the world frames life experiences to a way that I love and believe in, and that’s, that is Chromatica. I live on Chromatica, that is where I live. I went into my frame – I found earth, I deleted it. Earth is canceled. I live on Chromatica.”
She added that BloodPop helped to inspire the album name, stating: “We talked about how Chromatica was essentially on its own when you first look at it, it seems to be about colors and all the different colors and also music is made of a chromatic scale, you know? So it’s all the colors, all the sounds, you know, so we, we’re talking about inclusivity and life and also a lot of what we see around us and what we’re experiencing is math, which is very much like music and and sound is math as well.”
Chromatica is available to pre-order now.
