German DJ, Zedd, is working with Lady Gaga on her new album called ARTPOP, and in a new interview he says that he thinks what they have created is pretty cool and he can't imagine her fans not liking it. He says even though he comes from a dance background, people should not just assume the album is all electronic dance music. He says he has really worked on tracks for Gaga that are outside the scope of what he normally does. He says for example, she gave him 10 words to describe an emotion and he created music based on those ten words, Zedd says this whole process has been very experimental. ARTPOP is supposed to be released before the end of 2013.
