What is the album called?

Gaga's album is going to be called 'Joanne'.

The name is a reference to her aunt, Joanne Stefani Germanotta, who sadly died of lupus aged 19.

Despite passing away 12 years before Gaga was born, the singer spoke about her connection with her aunt in a recent interview.

"As I returned to my home life and spending time with my friends and family and getting out of the mainstream limelight for a minute, the experiences of our family and our challenges that make us who we are."

"It’s everything about Joanne ... it’s all the toughness of the pain of losing her that made us all strong and made us who we are. She is the woman of my past who is becoming and helping me bring more of my honest woman self into the future."

So it looks set to be a pretty emotional affair!

Who is going to feature on the album?

'Perfect Illusion' was co-written and co-produced by Mark Ronson, BloodPop and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker - so we know they've played a part in the album.

When it comes to featured artists, there is a huge amount of speculation that Kesha is set to feature.

Gaga previously tweeted her support for Kesha following her legal battle and then Kesha posted this pic to Instagram...

Could it be Gaga?

It has been confirmed that Florence Welch and Father John Misty will both appear on 'Joanne'.

Florence will feature on a song titled 'Hey Girl', whilst Father John will appear on a song named 'Sinner's Prayer'.

Talking about that track, Gaga said, "This song is about singing to a man just telling him, 'Look I just don’t want to break the heart of any other man but you, but I know that I'm a sinner.'"

Queens Of The Stoneage frontman Josh Homme is set to play guitar on a track titled 'John Wayne and Gaga commented that the song explores "my incessant need to run after wild men and somehow I get bored of the same old John."

Beck is another artist who Gaga confirmed would feature on the album, although we're not sure the name of their collaboration just yet.

  • ‘Perfect Illusion’
  • ‘Ayo’
  • ‘Hey Girl’ feat. Florence Welch
  • ‘Joanne’
  • ‘Sinner's Prayer’ feat. Father John Misty

Where can I get a copy?

In a recent interview, Lady Gaga claimed that she will not be running any exclusive streaming deals with any companies,

She revealed, "I told my label that if they signed those contracts with Apple Music and Tidal, I'd leak all my own new music."

So as Gaga wants all her fans to be able to access the album, you can expect the usual physical copies as well as all downloads on all the standard platforms.
