Coronavirus: Lady Gaga delays album due to COVID-19: 'A scary time'

Lady Gaga fans will have to wait a little bit longer for new music. 

On Tuesday, the singer announced that she is postponing the release of her sixth album “Chromatica,” which was slated for April 10. In a lengthy note posted to social media, Gaga explained that it “just doesn’t feel right” to release the album amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which has more than 380,000 confirmed cases worldwide. 

“First of all, I want to make sure everyone is staying safe and practicing social distancing,” Gaga wrote. “Please know that I’m thinking of you all.”

“This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one of the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic,” Gaga wrote. “Instead I prefer that we spend this time focusing on finding solutions,” including getting “essential medical equipment to healthcare professionals” and assisting kids and adults impacted by the pandemic.
