Find out what Joanne means to Lady Gaga

Less than a week after releasing a new single, Lady Gaga has officially announced her first new album since ARTPOP in 2013.

During her interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe, the 30-year-old artist revealed the album is "going to be done in the next 48 hours". Joanne is also the name of Gaga's father's New York City restaurant.

"It's all the toughness of the pain that happened as a result of losing that made us all strong, and made us who we are", she said during the interview.

"She is the woman of my past, helping me bring more of my honest-woman self to the future", she told Lowe on his radio show.

It's a moment we all shared together, as fans from different parts of the world, and I just hope Lady Gaga gets the chance to see this for herself'.

Brazilian corruption scandal sees former president charged
Last month, Lula's successor and ally, Dilma Rousseff, was impeached over an unrelated case of accounting irregularities. Lula's lawyers said in a statement that he strongly denied the allegations and would fight the charges.

Entitled Joanne, the album will be released worldwide on October 21st.

The album artwork will showcase Joanne's handwriting, as well as include personal items like her driver's license and photos. Florence Welch and Beck also contributed to the album.

"He was younger than her and she was very sick with lupus", she said. She also hinted two other thrilling hits-"Ayo", a DJ tribute, and an unnamed song with Bollywood-inspired rhythm.

Linking up with Lindsey is an interesting combination for sure, and is just more evidence on how Joanne may be Gaga's most eclectic record to date. Produced by an unexpected but talented team consisting of Mark Ronson (Uptown Funk), Tame Impala's Kevin Parker and BloodPop, who helped formed Justin Bieber's smash hit "Sorry", the song had hit written all over it.
