Lady Gaga Invites Charli XCX, Arca, and More Music Stars Into Her World on ‘Dawn of Chromatica’ Remix Album
Over a year after the album’s release, Lady Gaga is taking her Little Monsters back to planet Chromatica. The remix album Dawn of Chromatica is out today, and the award-winning singer and actress linked up with some of the music industry’s hottest names today to put their own spins on her beloved 2020 dance LP Chromatica.
Fans first got a taste of what was to come in April of this year when Chromatica producer BloodPop hinted that he was back in the kitchen cooking with Gaga. “In theory – which artists would y’all want to see on a Chromatica remix album (and on what song)?” he said slyly. He threw out a name himself: Japanese-British breakout singer Rina Sawayama.
Gaga expressed her excitement in August as the project was being finished. “The Chromatica remix album is so f*cking fuego,” she said proudly. “Music is life.”
For Dawn of Chromatica, Gaga recruited some of the best and brightest artists, producers, and DJs in the business, many of which are rising stars themselves. Grammy-nominated producer Arca offers her own dancefloor-ready take on “Rain On Me,” while the remix for Chromatica lead single “Stupid Love” is handled by French producer COUCOU CHLOE. Charli XCX joins the party for “911,” and Brazilian pop star Pabllo Vittar gives a rare English performance on “Fun Tonight.” And after BloodPop teased a possible collabor with Rina Sawayama, the singer joined Gaga for the remix of “Free Woman.” The album even contains two versions of closing track “Babylon”: a remix with burgeoning British rapstress Bree Runway, and a demo of the original “Babylon” track that has been used in ads for Gaga’s Haus Labs beauty brand (fittingly dubbed the “Haus Labs Version”).
