Writing and Development Edit

The writing of the album has been ongoing since the release of ARTPOP in 2013. Longtime producer and friend, RedOne, posted pictures and teasers about his work with Lady Gaga. For this record, Gaga called in new collaborators like Diane Warren, Beck, Florence Welch, Mark Ronson, songwriter Hillary Lindsey, Father John Misty and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker. During sessions for the album, Gaga and Warren wrote "Til it Happens to You" for the documentary, The Hunting Ground. Gaga has also teased that her alter ego, Jo Calderone, may appear. On October 2, 2015, Lady Gaga released the song "I Want Your Love" for the 2016 Tom Ford Spring/Summer Womenswear Collection. Gaga also announced the lead single "Perfect Illusion" on Twitter on Wednesday morning, August 17th.

Billboard reported on September 12th Gaga stopped by Elvis Duran's Z100 show to talk about the songs recorded with Ronson: "Every song on this album is completely autobiographical... these songs are implicitly related to things relating to my life." The album is named after her late aunt Joanne, who Gaga herself is also named after.

The album booklet features Aunt Joanne's student car, a letter to her brother Joe, along with behind the scenes photos of the making the album process.

An On-line mini series called 'MAKING JOANNE' was released online as part of a documentary which features the background and development of the songs featured on the album.
