Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” will apparently not only be the greatest album of the decade, as she’s previously promised, but it’ll also be more poetic.
The singer revealed details about her anticipated record to the BBC while in London for her U.K. Monsterball tour, explaining that she plans to drop a new single around February 2011, with the album arriving soon after.
Fans can expect a sound that’s "a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats,” Gaga said, noting that at this point she’s just fine-tuning the tracks.
Lyrically ,”this album is more poetic,” she said, adding that it’s her little monsters who helped write it.
"It's really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they're funneling so much into me,” she said. “So I wrote it for them. ‘Born This Way’ is all about my little monsters and me, mother monster.”
