"Joanne" is a title track by Lady Gaga from her fifth studio album, Joanne written by Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson and produced by Ronson and Bloodpop. The song is a down-tempo country ballad and a tribute to Gaga's deceased paternal aunt Joanne Germanotta.
The song pays tribute to Gaga's aunt, who died due lupus at the age of 19. She passed away before Gaga was born, however she often claims that her paternal aunt is an important figure in her life and also an inspiration for the entire album.
Gaga said: “I realised my father's sister Joanne, who'd died at 19, had instilled her spirit in me. She was a painter and a poet – and I had a spiritual vision I had to finish her business.".
Gaga has called the song "the true heart and soul of the record". Joanne is also one of Gaga’s middle names.
