Lady Gaga has announced the name and release date of her upcoming fifth studio album.

The collection, titled Joanne, will be released on October 21st, and yesterday (September 15th) the singer shared the album artwork with the world, which is very paired down in comparison to the star’s pervious efforts, which have seen her become a motorcycle and collaborate with Jeff Koons.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on AppleMusic’s Beats 1, Gaga explained how the record, which isn’t quite completed, would be finished within the next 48 hours.

Gaga then went on to reveal the album title, Joanne, which is also a song name, and the release date.

Gaga went on to say that on the physical edition of the album, there would be a collection of clippings and photographs that her father shared with her aunt.

This isn’t the first time that Gaga has mentioned the lasting impact that her late-aunt had on her.

Despite never meeting, Gaga included a poem to that her aunt, who was a poet and painter, wrote in the liner notes for her album The Fame, and in the thank you notes to that record Gaga also penned her own poem.

Lady Gaga recently revealed the lead single from the album, “Perfect Illusion,” which is a collaboration with Mark Ronson (who is co-executive producing the album), Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, and BloodPop.

Lady Gaga can currently be seen starring in American Horror Story. Her new album, Joanne, will be released on October 21st.
