Lady Gaga starts work on next album

Cover star The Grammy-winner opens up about the inspiration for her most recent album Joanne in the feature for V magazine's The Music Issue

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.

Image Group LA/ABCLady Gaga's most recent album, Joanne, just came out late a year ago, but she's already looking ahead to her next release. Fans who have followed Mother Monster since and before The Fame know that each of her albums denotes a specific point in her evolution as an artist and growth as a person with some of those, like ARTPOP and Joanne sounding very different from the music that made her famous-much to some people's chagrin.

"I've started writing", she told Entertainment Weekly. "I need some time to create". While her songs haven't always received high praise from the public, Gaga insists her own outlook is what's most important rather than that of others.

"This show's actually extremely complex and complicated, and the stage is coded with a computer". So, the setlist might change a little bit, but mostly you're coming to see a piece that we've created for you.

"They come backstage, get a picture with me, and get to sit close to the stage and see the stage before I go on, check out the crew, and the hustle and bustle of the backstage area", Gaga continues. It was the first of a planned 59 shows, and the initial box office stats courtesy, of Billboard Boxscore, indicate that the pop star could pull in more than $100 million by the time the tour comes to an end in the middle of December. "It keeps us strong". You fall on the sword always.

"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".

She brings the epic Joanne World Tour to the United Kingdom for five shows in October, so we'll be keeping everything crossed for some exclusives.
