Lady Gaga has hinted that she could follow up the release of her jazz album ‘Cheek To Cheek’ with a Led Zeppelin-inspired rock release.
Gaga recently released ‘Cheek To Cheek’, her duet album with Tony Bennett. The LP features many jazz standards including ‘It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)’, ‘Sophisticated Lady’, ‘Lush Life’ and the album’s title track. Speaking to fans via a
Reddit AMA, Gaga hinted that jazz is not the only genre besides pop that interests her musically.
“I was in a classic rock covers band at the same time I was in jazz band in high school and doing jazz state competitions,” Gaga said. “We were called Mackin’ Pulsifer. I have a real passion for Robert Plant’s vocals, Led Zeppelin was a huge inspiration for me. I’m certain that side of my musicianship will seep through the pores of music in the future.”
Earlier this year in April Lady Gaga said that she plans to release the sequel to her ‘Artpop’ album “very soon.” Gaga first teased the possibility of a second ‘Artpop’ album back in 2012 when she discussed tentative plans to put out a “commercial” volume of the record first which would be swiftly followed by a more “experimental” sequel. ‘Artpop’ was released in November 2013.
The singer is also on record as saying that she is considering playing both albums on her forthcoming world tour, which arrives in the UK this October.
