Lady Gaga Calls Born This Way Her ‘Most Innovative’ Work

Gaga tells BBC new album crosses genres, from electronic to rock and roll

[artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] hasn’t exactly been shy when it comes to describing Born This Way, calling her upcoming record everything from “almost perfect” to “the greatest album of this decade.”

And, in a new interview with the BBC, she continued that trend, calling Born her “most innovative” work so far, and promising her fans a musical experience unlike any they’ve ever heard.

“[The album is] a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock and roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats,” Gaga said , immediately before jumping onstage at London’s O2 Arena. “I think that lyrically this album is more poetic … It’s really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they’re funneling so much into me. So I wrote it for them. Born This Way is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster.”

Echoing something she’s been saying since the summer, Gaga promised that the album is “finished and all,” but that she’s currently “fine-tuning everything.”

“It’s kind of like the post-operative stage of the album,” she said. “I’ve already done the full heart surgery. I’m just sewing myself back up again.”

And, to that end, she added that her monsters might not have to wait much longer to hear the album’s first single — the title of which is still unknown — telling the BBC it would be released in February 2011, with the album arriving “shortly after.”
