Lady Gaga has opened up about making the follow-up to her 2016 album ‘Joanne’, revealing that it helped her manage her depression.
The pop star, who today (February 28) unveiled her new single ‘Stupid Love’, was speaking to New Music Daily with Zane Lowe on Apple Music about the process of writing her sixth, as-yet-untitled album.
When asked how it compared to making ‘Joanne’ as well as how ‘Stupid Love’ was created, Gaga responded: “This was much more like, ‘You know what, guys? It turns out I just sobbed for three minutes and this is what came out, and this is what should be there.’
“And it was so real and it was so, like – all my gears, all my musical bells, all my artistic thoughts, the way that I see music and experience music like a wall of sound – everything was just firing on all cylinders,” she added. “And it made me feel so happy because I thought to myself, ‘Wow, even when you feel six feet under, you can still fire on all cylinders’.”
