Everything We Know About Lady Gaga's Highly Anticipated Sixth Album, Chromatica

Put your paws up, Little Monsters, because Lady Gaga is dropping a new album! Back in March 2019, Gaga confirmed her sixth studio LP was on the way (and simultaneously shut down pregnancy gossip), tweeting, "Rumors I'm pregnant? Yeah, I'm pregnant with #LG6." Now, she's delivering new music in anticipation of Chromatica, starting with her single "Stupid Love," which dropped on Feb. 27.

Speaking with Zane Lowe on Apple's New Music Daily podcast, Gaga opened up about the track and shared how her music has evolved since her last album, 2016's Joanne. "On Joanne, I was more in a space artistically of crafting something that, you know, conceptually all kind of went together, an album for my father, an album about the trauma of my family, an album about how we pass things on generationally to each other . . . it was very specific," she said. "This was much more like . . . I just sobbed for three minutes and this is what came out, and this is what should be there. And it was so real . . . all my gears, all my musical bells, all my artistic thoughts, the way that I see music and experience music like a wall of sound, everything was just firing on all cylinders and it made me feel so happy because I thought to myself, wow, even when you feel six feet under, you can still fire on all cylinders."

Y'all hear that? "Firing on all cylinders." All cylinders will be fired on, none will remain unscathed, and we are ready. Keep reading to find out everything we know about Gaga's Chromatica album.

What Is the Name of Lady Gaga's Sixth Album?

OK, so we've been calling the album LG6 since that's what Gaga tweeted in 2019, but that was just a filler title. On March 2, Gaga officially announced that the album will be titled Chromatica. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Gaga revealed that BloodPop was actually the one that came up with the title. "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?" she said. "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."

"For me sound is what healed me in my life period, and it healed me again making this record, and that is really what Chromatica is all about," Gaga continued. "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."

What Kind of Album Is Chromatica Going to Be?

Here's where things get especially exciting. As much as we've enjoyed "Shallow"-era Gaga, we're fully prepared for Mother Monster's campy, eccentric footprints to stomp all over our playlists. According to Gaga, Chromatica is going to sound like a big party.

"We are definitely dancing," she said on New Music Daily. "I put all my heart, all my pain, all my messages . . . into music that I believe to be so fun and energetically really pure, and I want people to dance and feel happy. You know, someone asked me the other day what my goal was with this album, and it actually sounds ridiculous when I say it out loud. But I said, 'I would like to put out music that a big chunk of the world will hear, and it will become a part of their daily lives and make them happy every single day.'"
