Lady Gaga completes new album
The singer told Rolling Stone magazine that her next LP is now finished and will be released next year.
She said she spent several months working on the record and is satisfied that no more needs to be done.
"It came so quickly. Some artists take years," Lady Gaga commented.
"I don't - I write music every day."
The star noted that the songs on the album have a more "bitter" tone than much of her previous work.
She added that the title of the record will not be disclosed until midnight on New Year's Eve.
Lady Gaga already has a number of UK dates lined up before the end of the year, including three gigs at the Odyssey in Belfast.
She is also set to perform at the O2 Arena in London in December.
