Lady Gaga Announces 'Joanne' Album & Release Date

The Born This Way hitmaker, real name Stefani Germanotta, never met her father Joe's sister, as she died of lupus in 1974 at the age of 19. Her family also owns an Italian restaurant named Joanne Trattoria on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She is the woman of my past who is becoming and helping me bring more of my honest woman self into the future.

Red hot: Lady Gaga went all-out Ziggy Stardust in tribute of the late David Bowie. This single is from Lady Gaga's announced studio album, due later this year.

Joanne will be in stores on October 21, and you can see the full album art below.

Speed boat crash in Massachusetts leaves 1 dead, 1 critical
The driver of the first boat that spun out of control, a 72-year-old ME man, suffered minor injuries, fire officials said. The driver of the third boat, a 67-year-old man from ME , was transported to Rhode Island Hospital in critical condition.

Gaga said that the album, which includes a song entitled Joanne, explored her reconnection with her family after she took a step back from the limelight. She also questions images that are "filtered and altered", asking how we "decipher what is reality and what is a ideal illusion?" Produced by an unexpected but talented team consisting of Mark Ronson (Uptown Funk), Tame Impala's Kevin Parker and BloodPop, who helped formed Justin Bieber's smash hit "Sorry", the song had hit written all over it. Father John Misty, Beck and Florence + the Machine also collaborated on tracks. "I just thought, 'Who do I want to sing with?' She's really, to me, if not the best, one of the greatest vocalists in the world". There are now 12 songs on the album's track list, but Gaga said that might be cut to 11 songs and 14 songs on the deluxe version.

Gaga says the record will be completed within 48 hours, and one of the collaborators will be Hillary Lindsey, who's best known for crafting country hits for the likes of Carrie Underwood and Cassadee Pope.
