Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album, “Joanne,” was released yesterday to a flurry of reviews after Gaga’s New York “Dive Bar” performance. The Rolling Stone was quick to review the album saying it’s her “best in years.” Lady Gaga has said this is a pop album that’s personal to her and her family. Joanne is Lady Gaga’s middle name, but also her Dad’s sister’s name who passed away from lupus. With songs like “Joanne,” “Million Reasons” and “Sinner’s Prayer” I would say this album is unexpected but a nice little gem to add to our LG record collections.
Fans can enjoy yet another performance from Lady Gaga on SNL tonight and an upcoming carpool karaoke episode with James Corden. You can find a bunch of recent radio interviews on youtube giving away album details and episodes showing Lady Gaga in the studio making “Joanne” in a documentary. So far, episode 1 featured behind-the-scenes for “A-Yo.” Fans were also treated to a meet & greet at the NYC restaurant owned by Gaga’s parents where she was selling & signing copies of “Joanne.”
