EXCLUSIVE: Giorgio Moroder’s working on Lady Gaga’s next album

Moustachioed living legend Giorgio Moroder has revealed to Popjustice that he’s going to work with Lady Gaga on songs for her new album.

In fact, if the song and the mood suits, she might even make an appearance on Giorgio’s own forthcoming album, but let’s deal with that bit in a minute.

Basically, during our interview we were chatting away about his Britney collaboration and it was suggested that Lady Gaga could come in and finish a bridge bit that’s not been recorded as yet, prompting Moroder to say the following words:

“I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I’ll see her when I’m back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I’m going to be surprised, I think – I don’t have a clue about the way she’s recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?”

Asked if the sessions were for her album or his, he said:

“This is for her new album – that’s the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible.”

It really would.

Ruminating on the idea some more, he added: “If I have a good track that could fit my album but not necessarily hers, that could be ideal.”

You can read more on all this – plus Britney, the past, the future and a Dragons Den’-style product pitch – right here in the Popjustice interview.
