During her call to Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show Gaga said her album, Joanne will drop on October 21.“I was named after her,” she tells Lowe during the interview.“The day that the album comes out will be such a day of healing for me and my family. I feel like [Joanne’s] getting to live the rest of the life that she never got to.” Gaga who called form the studio said the album is on the cusp of being finished like “in the next 48 hours.”
Gaga says Joanna is “the true heart and soul of the record.” She continued, “As I returned to my home life and spending time with my friends and family and getting out of the mainstream limelight for a minute, the experiences of our family and our challenges that make us who we are. It’s everything about Joanne … it’s all the toughness of the pain of losing her that made us all strong and made us who we are. She is the woman of my past who is becoming and helping me bring more of my honest woman self into the future.”
