On the website, she hinted that perhaps she’ll do two volumes as it helps her in both ways, 1) lots of Mother Monster songs for her Monsters, and 2) it won’t confuse the rest of the population as she’ll have relatively commercial songs:
Sort of thinking that vol. 1 should have all the commercial songs and save the experimental material for vol. 2.
She also revealed that she was inspired by Indonesian monsters even though her sold-out concert in Jakarta had to be canceled due to religious protestors:
I love indonesian monsters, they inspired some songs on ARTPOP, I was really inspired by the conflict we had with indonesia so I wrote some songs about it but their more metaphorical and conceptual about bringing people together, both are dance songs, one song is a complextro masterpiece and the other is a hip-hop/j-pop/pop song. And it’s not hip-hop in the way you know, it’s more underground chicago gay club trap and it’s very diffrent from Azealia Banks music because she’s more 90′s house.
As for the album, she plans on releasing volume two six months after the first and ARTPOP will not be a Born This Way II.
All the songs are completely diffrent. anyway the album is not one kind of music and I think i’m going to release 2 volumes – ARTPOP volume 1 and ARTPOP volume 2 and would put on second volume maybe like 6 months after this?. the app IS COMING ALONG AMAZING and that’s why I fly back to chicago to work on app and see taylor.
the developers on artpop are all like 22 and genius kids, you’d be surprised how many genius little monsters their are! I can’t decide how to tracklist yet but it’s sort of thinking that VOL.1 should have all the commercials songs, and then save the experimental meterial. but to be honest even the experimental stuff is catchy.VOL.1 is a bit more modern. Cake Like Lady Gaga it’s not really experimental more just fun trap. I wouldn’t call what I do ‘rap’ it’s more like hardcore glam that’s what they call it underground, spoked word over techno/hip-hop, and there’s techno yea. It’s NOTHING like bornthisway. but it will feel like a ‘piece’ the way btw did.
Meanwhile, her song Princess Die, which was revealed earlier this year will probably not even make the cut on her new album as she doesn’t think it’s as good as her other songs:
I don’t think Princess Die will make the cut, but I wrote another version of princess die that is uptempo…totally diffrent song. Princess Die isn’t as good as all the other songs I wrote, artpop is more a project experience. Like each song means something to me whether or not it makes the record.
Well, that was a lot to process, but who’s excited for a new Lady Gaga album?
