Singer Lady Gaga is working on her highly-anticipated new album and Elton John is apparently on her list of collaborators.
John revealed he would be having a writing session with Gaga in an interview on Zane Lowe’s ‘Beats 1’ show. “I’m writing with GaGa tomorrow, she’s doing a new record. I’ve heard two songs which are killer, they’re just great songs. It’s like back to the early stuff of hers: You and I and the Bruce Springsteen Bad Romance,” he said.
The 68-year-old singer said he was not a fan of Gaga’s 2013 album, “ARTPOP”, but admitted she is a great writer and he wants her to do really well. “I think she’s a great writer. To me, she is Stefani Germanotta and I love her and I care about her - she’s Godmother to my two children. And I want her to go and make a kind of simple, fabulous, great song record.
Maybe like ‘Tapestry’, but her version. I’ve heard two of the songs and they’re not complex... They’re not complex arrangements, but they are great songs. It’s all about the song,” he said.
