Lady Gaga set to release a new album in 2017?

Following on from 2016's 'Joanne'

Lady Gaga could be set to release a new album later in 2017, what would be her second record release in 12 months.

The singer, who released ‘Joanne’ in October 2016, recently returned to the recording studio to work on new music and now Forbes reports that a full-length is due this coming October.

In a report suggesting that Gaga won’t be paid for her upcoming Super Bowl half-time show, the financial publication claims that “Lady Gaga’s new album [is] slated for early October 2017”.

Gaga is yet to comment on the reports but NME has approached a representative of the singer for a response.

Lady Gaga was recently photographed in the studio with Brian Kennedy, a pop-R&B producer known for his work with Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson. Kennedy shared a picture of himself with Gaga and country singer-songwriter Dallas Davidson. “First session of the year,” he wrote in the caption.

Gaga released fifth album ‘Joanne’ in October and supported it with a small “dive bar” tour of the US. She also performed an intimate gig for just 100 fans on the roof of a London shopping centre.

She is due to make her live return at the Super Bowl halftime show in Houston, Texas on February 5. Over the weekend she hinted that a full tour announcement is coming soon by re-tweeting a fan account which had tweeted that Gaga’s tour is “already booked” and “ready to be announced” after the halftime show.

Last month, Gaga agreed to an interview with Piers Morgan after he described himself as “sceptical” about her account of being a victim of sexual assault.

Morgan was responding to a powerful open letter Gaga posted about suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. In the letter, she told fans: “There is a lot of shame attached to mental illness, but it’s important that you know that there is hope and a chance for recovery.”
