Pop superstar Lady Gaga has postponed the release of her sixth studio album, Chromatica, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gaga has not revealed the new release date for Chromatica, which was set to drop on April 10.
“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one 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,” she said.
Chromatica is a follow-up to Joanne and the soundtrack to A Star Is Born. The record includes her single “Stupid Love.”
Gaga revealed that she had an appearance at Coachella in the works, along with several “surprises.” Coachella has also been postponed and will now take place in September instead of its usual two weekends in April.
“I had so many fun things planned for us to celebrate together,” she wrote. “I had a secret Coachella set lined up, and a lot of other fun surprises, some of which I’m still planning to share with all of you very soon! Chromatica is still very much on the way and I can’t wait.”
Gaga joins a series of artists who’ve postponed their album releases, including Willie Nelson, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith, Kehlani and Pink Floyd‘s Nick Mason.
