It's time!! Lady Gaga has announced her brand new album, Joanne, set to release this fall. The artist made the reveal with a beautiful portrait of her wearing a chic pink hat on her Instagram account this morning.
We'll have to wait until October 21 for the full reveal, hoping a few more singles will release. She's already given us a taste, as "Perfect Illusion" dropped just last Friday. You can hear it below.
Gaga says that Joanne was named after her aunt, who unfortunately passed from lupus at age 19, leaving a heavy heart on the family. Gaga called the title track "the true heart and soul of the record," adding,
"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."
