Sixteen song album features several collaborations
Lady Gaga has now set May 29th as the release date for her sixth studio album Chromatica. The project was delayed from an April 10th release due to COVID-19. The 16 track album is available in a variety of configurations and includes the newly released “Rain On Me” with Ariana Grande and debut single “Stupid Love.” Elton John and Blackpink also make special appearances on Chromatica.
“If you’re listening to this album and you’re suffering in any type of way, just know that that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity, and you are not broken, you’re connected to the whole world and we are one giant body,” she tells Zane Lowe during a recent interview. “We are one full entity. And the whole you is having a whole human experience, and there might be parts of your life that feel like completely shallow or robotic or ancillary or unimportant, and that’s okay, but that suffering is a sign that you’re real.”
Fans can pre-order a variety of editions and exclusive limited edition merch options from her online shop. A “Rain On Me” picture disc, cassette and CD single are available with a download code for its digital counterpart.
Signed Chromatica CDs are sold out, but fans can snag a clear LP, picture disc, cassette and non signed CDs of the album. Lady Gaga is celebrating the album’s release with a wide array of merch including hats, shirts, socks, pants, thongs, pillows, stickers, and more.
The pop star has released “Rain On Me” with Grande and an accompanied music video. The uptempo dance track unite the pair for a fun take on life.
“One time I felt like I was crying so much it would never stop. Instead of fighting it, I thought bring it on, I can do hard things,” Gaga shares on social media. “Ariana Grande I love you for your strength and friendship. Let’s show them what we’ve got.”
As of this writing, The Chromatica Ball Tour is still set for a special six city worldwide limited run of exclusive performances this summer.
