Lady Gaga on new album: 'It’s less an expression of all my pain'
Lady Gaga has suggested that her new music will be more hopeful than it has been previously.
The singer's last album came in the shape of 2013's 'ARTPOP', but she has been working for months on its follow-up.
Speaking to James Franco for V Magazine, the US star said acting on American Horror Story has allowed her to have a new "outlet" for her dark side.
This means that her music making has more "clarity" and gives Gaga a chance to think more about what she wants to say.
The singer said: "I’m using my listening from acting in my music more, which is crucial because it’s music. Who knew I could listen even more? It’s amazing to even talk about.
"There’s a tremendous freedom and a recklessness, but there’s also a sophistication in the show. There’s a lot of liberation, but it’s a very chic liberation.
"Here’s what I will say: when I wasn’t working on the show I was truly miserable because I had no safe house to get out any of my vices. Now I have a safe house for my vices so when I’m making music I just have a lot more clarity.
"I have a little less of an instinct to be reckless with my music now because I’m reckless in other places. So now I’m thinking more about what it is I want to say and what I want to leave on Earth. It’s less an expression of all my pain.
"There will be some of my pain on the record for sure, but it will be more than that. My last album was riddled with a ton of pain. That whole record. It’s almost like you couldn’t even get to what it is.
"Now, the show gives me an outlet to put things somewhere, so when I get to the piano I’m in a deeper place already. I have something completely other to explore."
