Lady Gaga is slowly but surely revealing to fans what her next album will sound like. And she claims she isn’t looking to sound more grown-up anytime soon.
During a concert stop in Perth, Australia, over the weekend, Gaga revealed some details about what the album, her follow-up to 2011’s Born This Way, will sound like. Before launching into her new track “Princess Die,” which may appear on the new album, she teased her Little Monsters a bit about the highly anticipated album release.
“It’s not about you, it’s about me. This whole thing is about me,” she joked about “Princess Die” in footage posted on Press Party. “Oh, the vanity of a singer. So I wrote this song and in a way it has a bit to do with the rest of the album … well, I’m not gonna say anything.
“Let’s just say I feel, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity,” she said. “And I feel that, on the next album, there’s a lack of maturity, it’s a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility.”
In addition to the new song and those minute details, Gaga shared with her fans that she will announce her album’s title in September. It’s an album title she’s actually had in mind for a very long while, sharing with MTV News back in December that she had already had picked it out.
“I’ve started writing it and I have the name for it and all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place,” she said. “I’m excited to put it out, but it’s not done yet. So I’ll put it out when it’s done.”
While Gaga is currently on her world tour, she is cooking up tracks for her new album’s release while on the road. “I get a little bit of anxiety thinking about that right now. I wanna just always try to outdo ourselves, our songs. They’re already incredible songs. But I feel like she’s so young,” her longtime producer Fernando Garibay said late last year, adding that at the time, the record was in its early stages and that “there’s a lot of room to grow.”
“The last record we made in bus stops and hotel rooms,” he said. “Wherever she’s at, we’ll make it.”
