Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Lady Gaga has delayed her sixth album Chromatica.
On Instagram she wrote, “I wanted to tell you, that after a lot of deliberation, I’ve made the incredibly tough decision to postpone the release of Chromatica.”
She explained that while art is something that can help at a time like this, she doesn’t feel right to release a project as the virus continues to cause havoc.
“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 the global pandemic,” The 33-year-old singer wrote.
She also believes that at this time, the focus should be on solutions and finding a cure so the world can heal.
“It’s important to me that the attention is on getting essential medical equipment to healthcare professionals, making sure kids 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 does explained that along with dropping her album later this year, she hopes to resume her Vegas shows and the “CHROMATICA BALL” tour can happen in the summer.
