Lady Gaga postpones release of new 'Chromatica' album due to COVID-19 concerns
March. 24, 2020
Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters will have to wait a while longer for her new album after the artist announced on Twitter this morning that its release will be postponed to an unknown date later in 2020 due to worries about COVID-19.
“Chromatica,” Lady Gaga’s sixth full length album, was scheduled for release on April 10, 2020. The album’s postpoining comes despite her having already released the albun’s lead single “Stupid Love” and its music video back in February.
“First of all, I want to make sure everyone is staying safe and practicing social distancing. Please know that I’m thinking of you all,” Gaga said in a post on Twitter. “I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of deliberation, I’ve made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica. I will announce a new 2020 release date soon.”
Gaga explains her rationale for the highly anticipated album’s release by saying “This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic.”
In the same statement, she also states that upcoming dates in April and May for her Las Vegas residency at MGM will also be postponed due to “guidelines about public gatherings from the CDC.” Gaga also shares how she had a “secret” Coachella set scheduled, but has not stated if the set will take place at Coachella’s rescheduled dates for later this year.
