announced that she will release 'The Fame Monster', a re-package of her 4 million-selling album "The Fame
". The album will include the entire breakthrough album 'The Fame', along with eight entirely new songs. 'The Fame Monster' (Streamline/KonLive/Cherrytree/Interscope Records), deals with the seamier side of fame, as experienced by Gaga over the course of her last history-making year. The new version will be released on November 24, 2009.
Says Lady Gaga, "On my re-release 'The Fame Monster', I wrote about everything I didn't write on 'The Fame'. While traveling the world for two years, I've encountered several monsters, each represented by a different song on the new record: my 'Fear of Sex Monster,' my 'Fear of Alcohol Monster,' my 'Fear of Love Monster,' my 'Fear of Death Monster,' my 'Fear of Loneliness Monster,' etc."
"I spent a lot of nights in Eastern Europe, and this album is a pop experimentation with industrial/Goth beats, 90's dance melodies, an obsession with the lyrical genius of 80's melancholic pop, and the runway. I wrote while watching muted fashion shows and I am compelled to say my music was scored for them. I also composed a ballad for the album, "Speechless", a song for my father, and it's my favorite work of all. I wrote every piece on the road - no songs about money, no songs about fame. I wrote it for my fans, so I wrote everything in between."
The first club-banging single, the RedOne-produced "Bad Romance", will be released in early November. Other collaborators on the new tracks include Teddy Riley, Rodney Jerkins
, Ron Fair and Fernando Garibay.
Lady Gaga is also in the process of planning her next tour
