Lady GaGa had the concept for 'ARTPOP' a week after 'Born This Way' came out.
The 'Applause' hitmaker was planning what her latest album would look and sound like from the moment she finished her previous effort, 2011's 'Born This Way', according to collaborator DJ White Shadow.
He told MTV: ''It was less than a week that she had hit me after 'Born This Way '... and she literally sent me [a message saying] 'The next album's called 'ARTPOP'. She had the name and the general concept for the record a week after 'Born This Way' came out.''
''I am excited for [her] to be able to perform a bunch of new songs. Her concerts are always so fun and this music is so fun. I just know the performances are so fun.''
Gaga debuted seven tracks from the album for the first time as she made her live comeback in London last night (01.09.13), giving fans an idea what to expect, but White Shadow remains coy as to the overall concept of the record, other than saying it is a full body of work.
He added: ''It's just another step on the ladder, it's another step forward. It's different, it's a different record. We didn't sit down and say 'ARTPOP has to be this'. It's like that's how she's feeling at the time. I think it's a really fun album. There's really fun stuff on there. We didn't make 15 trees; we made a forest. She's writing every single song, so they're coming from her.''
'ARTPOP' is released in November.
