NEW YORK (AP) – After scrapping the original release date for her new album because of the spreading coronavirus, Lady Gaga has announced that her sixth studio release will be out on May 29.
Gaga announced the news Wednesday. â€œChromatica” was originally supposed to be released on April 10. The album includes collaborations with Ariana Grande, Elton John and Blackpink, and features the single â€œStupid Love,” which peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Several artists have postponed albums because of the coronavirus pandemic, including Luke Bryan, Dixie Chicks, Alanis Morissette, HAIM and Kehlani. Hundreds of live tours have also been canceled or postponed.
Gaga’s last full-length studio album was 2016’s â€œJoanne.” In 2018 she released the soundtrack for â€œA Star Is Born,” which won her four Grammy Awards as well as an Oscar for the hit song â€œShallow.”
â€œChromaticaâ€ will qualify for nominations at the 2021 Grammys. Songs and albums released between Sept. 1, 2019, through Aug. 31, 2020, are eligible.
Gaga’s hits include â€œJust Dance,” â€œPoker Face,” â€œBad Romance,” â€œBorn This Way” and â€œMillion Reasons.”
