Lady Gaga is officially delaying the release of her new album Chromatica, slated to be released on April 10.
Gaga announced the news to her Little Monsters via an announcement she shared on social media on Tuesday.
“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, 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,” she wrote.
She continued: “Instead I prefer that we spend this time focusing on finding solutions. It’s important to me that the attention is on getting essential medical equipment to healthcare professionals, making sure ids who depend on public schools for meals get the assistance they need, and that we help those who will be financially impacted by this pandemic.”
Gaga’s post also revealed that she had also planned to do a secret set at the Coachella Festival.
