If Born This Way was made for the Little Monsters, its 2013 sequel ARTPOP was made for the world. Lady Gaga has grand designs for her third album, to pull a "reverse Warhol," which presumably means she wants to channel high art into pop instead of pop into high art, but it's a little difficult to discern Gaga's intent, either in this statement or ARTPOP as a whole…
Joanne is the fifth studio album recorded by American singer Lady Gaga. It was released on October 21, 2016, through Streamline and Interscope Records as a follow-up to Artpop (2013) and Cheek to Cheek (2014). Gaga collaborated with several producers on the record, including Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, BloodPop and RedOne, and co-produced the majority of the material. The music of Joanne features "stripped-down" soft rock and dance-pop styles in order to emphasis the singer's vocal abilities, unlike on Artpop. Lyrically, the album delves on the theme of family and life's emotions, with the death of her father's sister, Joanne Stefani Germanotta, having a deep influence on the record. Japanese Edition contain bonus tracks.
A.C.T has recharged the batteries and now give us an album of splendour where the fans are in for a treat with progrock extravaganza, the classic A.C.T sound has returned and a tear almost fall from my eyes when I hear the fruitful "A truly gifted man". "Look at the freak" is the best song Sparks never wrote back in the 70´s, this band truly has a unique sound of artpop and progrock that is built on love for their heroes such as It Bites, Big Money, E.L.O, 10cc etc.
On Sunday, Sept. 1, Lady Gaga debuted several new songs from her upcoming Artpop album during her hour-long iTunes Music Festival performance at London's Roundhouse.
