Lady Gaga to Release Next Album "Sooner Rather than Later"

Lady Gaga to Release Next Album "Sooner Rather than Later"
Love her or loathe her, it's hard not to be fascinated by the pop culture sensation that is Lady Gaga. While we're still basking in the insane hype surrounding this year's Born This Way, the songwriter also known as Stefani Germanotta is already plotting the follow-up.

Gaga told Ryan Seacrest during a radio interview [via the Guardian], "I'm actually already working on my next album," explaining it would be out "sooner rather than later" in order to "keep things exciting."

Perhaps this new album will include "The Greatest Thing," her duet with Cher that will reportedly be out soon.

So how exactly will fans get their hands on this forthcoming album? At the f8 conference on September 22, her manager Troy Carter said, "If it was up to me, I'd give away the next album and put it on every handset that I can put it on, to get that scale."

Gaga's also got a new tour and video on the way. She said, "[They] keep me very excited and busy because I have lots of new ideas, and I know exactly how I want [everything] to look."

In other words, don't look for Lady Gaga to drop on the pop culture radar anytime soon.
