Several months may separate Lady GaGa‘s monsters from the release of ‘ARTPOP’, yet that hasn’t stopped the singer from ramping up buzz for the hotly anticipated album.
Thus far, the star has drip-fed fans with information surrounding the “experience” that the project is shaping up to be. And with this being a “forumla” that has worked, the 26 year old is sticking to it, taking to her Little Monsters platform to share more morsels of info this week.
Full story below…
As per her postings on her social network, GaGa said of the LP (her fourth):
“It’s a bit more modern. You never know if radio is ready. I can’t decide how to tracklist it yet. Sort of thinking that vol. 1 should have all the commercial songs and save the experimental material for vol. 2.”
Elaborating on the previously confirmed news that the LP will come both as a traditional CD and packaged as an Apple/Android “app”, she added:
“The app is coming along amazing. I’m flying back to Chicago to work on it. The developers on ARTPOP are all like 22 and genius kids. You’d be surprised how many genius little monsters there are.”
Confirmed producers on the project include RedOne, DJ White Shadow, and Fernando Garibay.
In making an informed guess, it appears (for better or worse) GaGa has recorded sets of songs that would appease those who loved her ‘Fame / Fame Monster’ offerings, as well as material that leans more towards the brand of “progressive” she tried selling on ‘Born This Way’.
Given the hookless “construction noise” that defined the sound of the latter, we’re hoping that -two volumes or not- she sticks to and grows within the confines of the tried and tested. Especially in light of the mass dislike of much of the material on ‘Born’.
Sometimes, success isn’t about trying to be everything to everyone, it’s about knowing what the masses enjoy from you and working that “lane” to its full potential.
Here’s hoping GaGa strikes a balance between achieving that and creatively satisfying herself this go round.
