Lady Gaga has revealed the title and the meaning behind her upcoming album.
Gaga told Beats 1 radio’s Zane Lowe about the new record — which is titled Joanne, and said, “When Mark [Ronson] and I wrote it, the decision to name the album that was in tribute to my father’s sister who died when she was 19. He was younger than her. She was very sick with Lupus. The death of her in his family and life left a scar that never healed. 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.”
