Lady Gaga has decided to postpone the release of her forthcoming album, “Chromatica,” saying “it’s not the right time to drop new songs amid a global fight against the coronavirus.”
“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us,” Gaga said in a post on her social media channels. “And while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic.”
Gaga said on Twitter and Instagram that “after a lot of deliberation, I’ve made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica. I will announce a new 2020 release date soon.”
Gaga already had a set of Las Vegas concert dates tied to the release canceled and said Tuesday that she had also planned a surprise set at the Coachella music festival, which was also previously postponed.
