Lady Gaga Is Finally Releasing A New Album!

Is Mother Monster going back to where it all began?

Right Gaga. You've had your year doing jazz with Tony Bennett, so can you now just be an incredible popstar again, please.

It's been more than two years since the mixed reaction to her third albumARTPOP, but if early hints for where the 29-year-old is heading next are to be given weight, it seems she's going back to where it all began.

Lady Gaga album release date: It's coming this year

Just as 2013's ARTPOP was released, Lady Gaga's close team fell apart. The famously eccentric performer fired her manager, perhaps whilst dressed as a Yeti. Troy Carter was out over "creative differences" and Live Nation's Bobby Campbell was brought in to look after her career.

Gaga is the queen of reinvention in modern pop, but Campbell's plans for her included a more long-term transformation. We've seen her tone it down for mature jazz album Cheek To Cheek with Tony Bennett, perform a surprisingly traditional but stunning tribute to The Sound of Music at the Oscars, and more recently star in Ryan Murphy's hit TV series American Horror Story.

But now all of that is out the way, it means Gaga will focus on releasing her new album in 2016. The star confirmed the new record for later this year after her win at the Golden Globes.
