As you already know, Lady Gaga has plans to release LG5 later this year, and she's pulling in the big dogs to make sure that this release isn't, well, anything like Artpop. Not only does she have RedOne, Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers on board for the studio effort, but she's also bringing in the one and only Sir Elton John to help out with things.
In a recent radio interview, the iconic singer/songwriter revealed that he's already heard two "killer" songs that hark back to Mother Monster's earlier material, and we have to admit that we're pretty stoked to hear the latest development.
"I'm writing with Gaga tomorrow," he admitted. "I've heard two songs, which are killer. They're just great songs. It's like back to the early stuff of hers — like 'You And I' and the Bruce Springsteen one (as I always call it), 'Bad Romance.'"
When it comes to Elton's thoughts on 2013's Artpop, let's just say he's not in the minority. "She made some bad career decisions," he continued. "Artpop was not a good idea. It was not a good album and I think she would admit that. Then in the midst of that, she did three things which were kind of amazing. She did the whole tour and album with Tony Bennett, which did amazingly well. She sang the Julie Andrews tribute at the Oscars, which everybody loved. And she was on 'American Horror Story.'"
If she's lucky, she'll also take one step closer to the EGOT circle if she nabs the award for Best Original Song for "Till It Happens To You" at the 88th Academy Awards on February 28.
