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.
