Gaga says she's already working on the follow-up, which she says will be released "sooner rather than later."
"I'm actually already working on my next album," she said. "So I've been working on that. I've been planning the next tour, which keeps me very excited and busy because I have lots of new ideas, and I know exactly how I want it to look. I'm also planning my next music video. I have lots of things to do, but in truth, I feel like I'm the most alive when I'm onstage."
And while there's still no release date (or any concrete information) on Gaga's next album, her manager, Troy Carter, recently

"If it was up to me, I'd give away the next album and put it on every handset that I can put it on," Carter said last week at the f8 conference in San Francisco. "You can't be scared to fail.
Sometimes we're going to get big results, and sometimes you learn a lesson, make an adjustment and move on."
Gaga made waves back in May with the multitude of methods she promoted Born This Way, including a much-discussed 99-cent pricing scheme with Amazon.com, which temporarily crashed the site.
A spokesperson for Gaga's label could not be reached for comment by MTV News about the new album.
