Lady Gaga may have just topped the charts with ‘Chromatica,’ but it appears there are plans in place to add to the project in unique way.
Full story below…
Mother Monster teamed with hitmaker BloodPop to craft the project, which birthed #1 bop ‘Rain On Me,’ and in a new interview he’s opening up about the process of piecing the LP together.
Fans who followed its pre-release trajectory lauded the news that the likes of Max Martin and Ryan Tedder were present on the set. Also exciting the Monsters was confirmation that Gaga had hit the studio with creative SOPHIE.
Yet, when ‘Chromatica’ landed, tracks with the latter were notably absent.
Well, according BloodPop, it appears the masses will hear them as part of an extension of the campaign:
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly:
“We worked with SOPHIE very early on. [She was] the first collaborator of those sessions. Those days were fun. We set up six microphones and recorded [Gaga’s] Lamborghini exhaust, and SOPHIE cut it up into samples. [Though they didn’t make the album], we still plan to finish those songs and present something special within the Chromatica universe.”
We’re still bopping to ‘Chromatica’ and are elated to hear + see Gaga embracing “the dancefloor she fought for.”
She’s a proven Pop shapeshifter, hence it’s anyone’s guess what the ‘Chromatica’ follow-up will be. As such, we’re all for her staying in this sonic “universe” for a while.
In today’s streaming led arena, many acts are tossing the rulebook to the side and finding innovative ways to feed fans and extend product lifecycles. Case in point, The Weeknd’s “expansion pack” of songs he bolted on to new album ‘After Hours’ – a mere week after the original release.
Hence, we’d love to see Gaga conjure up something similar. Especially in light of the promotional limitations the present global health crisis has put on her campaign.
