As Lady Gaga’s 2013 album, ARTPOP, enjoys a new resurgence from fans and climbs the iTunes charts once more, the record’s main producer, DJ White Shadow has revealed that he and Gaga are in talks of creating a sequel to the beloved LP.
Fans have been streaming the album this week in celebration of its release, even creating a petition for another record. The album was initially supposed to have an ACT II, which had never been released. DJ White Shadow took to Instagram to share that fans’ cries have now been heard, writing,
“I talked to LG last night and she shared my incredible joy. We made a plan to get together after Italy and discuss your wishes. No promises made, but kindness and love are strong as steel. Now is not the time to let up. Go harder. Forget the past. Think about the future. Apply positive pressure to the universe and let’s make a diamond. I am so in love with you all.”
ARTPOP signified a difficult time in both Lady Gaga and DJ White Shadow’s lives, with Gaga revealing that, “making this album was like heart surgery, I was desperate, in pain, and poured my heart into the electronic music that slammed harder than any drug I could find.” White Shadow also shared his struggles, saying he had “never been so broken as a human being the day when that record was turned in. At times I felt finished with life. That is not an exaggeration.”
Gaga’s most recent album, Chromatica, was released last year, the record marking her sixth number one LP. Her most recent effort had featured collaborations with Axwell, Skrillex, Tchami, Boyz Noize, Madeon, BloodPop, and more.
