Lady Gaga has been busy making magic on American Horror Story: Hotel, but it looks like the entertainer could be coming back to music soon. She’s teaming up with DJ and producer Mark Ronson for her rumored LG5 album.
So, how did this news come about? From none other than British pop star Lily Allen. According to her, Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson could be making new music in the recording studio. Allen broke the news to E! UK at the British Fashion Awards on Monday, Nov. 23.
“I was meant to be in the studio with Mark Ronson tomorrow, and he cancelled on me ’cause Gaga’s here.'”

The “Sheezus” singer joked that she might just show up the studio to do a duet with the pop star. Lady Gaga also attended the fashion awards, but she didn’t reveal any details about her upcoming album.
Earlier this year, Bustle learned that Lady Gaga was in the recording studio with RedOne, the producer who’s behind her hits like “Bad Romance,” “Just Dance,” and “Poker Face.” Other than these new possible collaborations, there’s very little details about Gaga’s fifth studio album.
In case you didn’t know, Mark Ronson was the man behind Adele’s “Cold Shoulder,” Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good,” Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven,” Christina Aguilera’s “Slow Down Baby,” and Lilly Allen’s “Smile.” And he also collaborated with Amy Winehouse on her song “Valerie.”
Fans have been getting their Lady Gaga fix on this season’s American Horror Story. They were able to reflect back on her music career when the singer took to Instagram on Monday night to share some photos from her Born This Way era. In the photos, she credited photographer Nick Knight, who worked with her during the era.
Gaga’s longtime manager Troy Carter also fondly looked back at the beginnings of her career. He remembers the day when underground artist Stefani Germanotta walked into his office in 2007 wearing her trademark fishnets and oversized sunglasses and talked about “changing the game” in the music industry. Carter told Fast Company that he had never heard of Gaga before that moment, but he used his savvy social media skills to catapult her pop career.
Though Carter and Gaga have since parted their ways, she has inspired him to find emerging talent, but in the tech world.
In addition to working on some new music, Lady Gaga may reunite with Tony Bennett on his next album. His next covers album, The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, will definitely include more songs with Ms. Gaga herself. In his recent interview with Vulture, the 89-year-old legend confirmed that there’s concept sequel to their successful Cheek to Cheek album.
“Yeah, we’re doing an album. It’s going to be all Cole Porter songs. He was the best writer of all of them in the Great American Songbook. Highly intelligent. We’re going to have a lot of fun doing that.”
Meanwhile, Bennett’s wife revealed to People that they received a strict order from Gaga: Not to watch her in Season 5 of American Horror Story.
“Gaga told me, ‘Don’t let Tony watch it!’ I told Gaga I was watching it and she said, ‘Please don’t let Tony see it – I’m serious! Don’t let him watch it!’ And now that I’ve seen some of it I’m like, ‘Oh, I understand!'”
If you want more Gaga music, she and Bennett will be performing at the All-Star Grammy Concert, honoring Frank Sinatra, on Dec. 6 at 9 p.m. on CBS.
