Joanne is Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album, which was released on October 21, 2016. The lead single, “Perfect Illusion,” was released on September 9, 2016.

The album is named after her father’s sister Joanne, who died of lupus when she was only 19. Joanne is also Gaga’s real middle name (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta). “It’s all the toughness of the pain of losing her that made us all strong and made us who we are,” Gaga told Zane Lowe. “She is the woman of my past who is becoming and helping me bring more of my honest woman self into the future.”

"Every song on this album is completely autobiographical. Not that the others weren’t, these are just implicitly related, every single song, to actual things happening in my life."

16 Jan 2016: "I’ve been writing a lot for the past year. The show has really affected my voice, I have to say. 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."

03 Feb 2016: "I love my monsters. Everyday I'm more and more thankful for everything you have given me. I miss you and can't wait to sing and play and rip on some new tunes for you. ❤️"

"PI's Sound Not Indicative Of LG5"

15 Sep 2016: 

Joanne is Lady Gaga's fifth solo album and is scheduled for release on October 21st.

Of Joanne's title track, Gaga said: "For me it's the real heart and soul of the record. We wrote that song and the decision to ultimately name the album Joanne was in tribute to my father's sister who died when she was 19. The death of her in his family and his life really left a scar and a wound that never healed."

The song "John Wayne" is about Gaga's "incessant need to run after wild men" and getting bored of "the same old John." Gaga says, "This is a fantastic song we did, Josh Homme's guitars on it are just out of control."

Finally, Gaga revealed that "Ayo" might be her favorite on the album.

Gaga releases album cover.

Title track is a haunting ballad with epic vocals. A real change.

20 Sep 2016: Gaga releases the music video for Perfect Illusion.24 Sep 2016: Gaga releases back cover, tracklist and CD label.

26 Sep 2016: Joanne will be Pop. Dance. Rock. Soul. Country. Electronic. Folk. Funk.

04 Oct 2016:

Gaga sings a snippet of "Just Another Day":

"Just another way prove I love you and it's hard today, I'll lay back in my chair and find a way,"

That's the last song on the record," Gaga told Ryan. "It's probably the most New York-glam-pop song on the album. It's the one that airs from David Bowie, Mark Bolan, and then maybe from some like obscure, London metal stuff, the Beatles. It also kind of airs from the electroclash movement from New York and that's kind of when I was coming up, was right after that.

Gaga sings a snippet of  "Hey Girl":

"It wasn't that long ago we were living in the jungle so why do we gotta put each other down when there's more than enough love to g-g-go around"

21 Jan 2016: Elton John writing with Gaga. He heard two songs, which are killer. 'Back to the early stuff of hers,” he explained, referencing “You & I” (which he called “You & Me”) and the “Bruce Springsteen one,” “Bad Romance.”

I think this should be added in that official LG5 thread's OP. The other one only have the "LG5 Time" photo :giveup:. Can mods do that? Or maybe make this one the new official LG5 thread.
