Lady Gaga’s New Single, ‘Stupid Love,’ Is Dropping Friday

Lady Gaga has announced that her next single, “Stupid Love,” the first new material she has released since the “Star Is Born” soundtrack, is dropping Friday at midnight ET. The singer posted the news on her social media accounts; there is also a billboard in Hollywood.

Details were scant as this article published, but an early version of the song leaked onto the internet last month. That version of “Stupid Love” is a disco-infused anthem whose style harkens back to Gaga’s “Born This Way” album. Variety has reached out to Gaga’s camp and Interscope Records for more information.

The word “Chromatica” appears in the artwork and the copyright information on the billboard and could be the album’s title, as many fans immediately speculated online.

The Oscar winner teased that she was working on his sixth album a few times last year, most recently in September, when she posted an Instagram Story with a picture of her in the studio with the simple caption #LG6. Before that, in March, she tweeted, “Rumors I’m pregnant? Yeah, I’m pregnant with #LG6.” Otherwise, however, she’s remained vague on details, including a release date and title.

Even information about collaborators has been slim: Producer Bloodpop (Michael Tucker), who has worked with the singer as well as Justin Bieber and Madonna in the past, posted some video of working in the studio with her last year, and German producer/DJ Boys Noize (Alex Ridha) has been rumored to be involved as well. Gaga has given little indication herself: Both her Las Vegas residencies and a special SiriusXM concert in New York during Pride Week last year were heavily focused on early material — the SiriusXM concert featured just one song each from her past three albums (including “A Star Is Born”) amid many from her first three.

All indications point to a new chapter for the singer — and it starts Friday.
