Having just released a collaborative album with Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga is heading back into the studio with another musical legend.
Italian producer Giorgio Moroder has confirmed that he is going to work with the Artpop songstress on songs for her new album.
Speaking to Pop Justice, the 65-year-old star said although their previous studio sessions have gone awry, he was looking forward to the creative process.
"I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I'll see her when I'm back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I'm going to be surprised, I think – I don't have a clue about the way she's recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?"
Moroder, who has worked with music heavyweights including Britney Spears, David Bowie and Blondie, also revealed that there's a good chance that Mummy Monster will return the favour by featuring on his own forthcoming album.
"This is for her new album – that's the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible."
He added: "If I have a good track that could fit my album but not necessarily hers, that could be ideal."
A new sound?
Gaga's yet untitled seven studio album will be the follow up to her 2014 album Cheek to Cheek featuring Bennett. The record named Billboard's #1 Jazz Album of 2014 and was the pop star's third consecutive #1 album release in just over three years.
"It's liberating to be singing jazz, and especially at this point in my career," Gaga previously said of the changing direction of her music.
"I'm a rebel at heart. So in that way it's also me rebelling against my own pop music – that's really exciting for me.
" But I think the thing that has been the most powerful has been, there's a part of me that has been quiet for a long time that is now being reawakened, after years of producers and record label people telling me to make my voice sound more radio-friendly."
"Since The Fame, The Fame Monster and Born This Way, they've been auto-tuning it more, or changing the timbre. They take the vibrato out so you sound like a robot."
