Zedd clarifies: “ARTPOP is NOT far away from being finished”

Recently MTV News published an article where Zedd stated that there’s still a lot of work left on Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ARTPOP, which is set to be released later this year. However some things in the interview were misunderstood so Zedd felt the need to write a post on his Facebook page. He wrote:

There’s been an interview where some things I said were placed out of context and misunderstood so I wanna make sure you guys know what I was ACTUALLY saying before media bent it to what they wish I said.


I never said ARTPOP is “rough” of “far away from being finished”!
I was speaking about my own material with her and how we have to finish that up. I’m a perfectionist and to me everything that’s not perfect yet is “rough”, and that’s also why it’s going to be so good!


When I said “it could be 10, it could be 5, it could be 1 song” I obviously didn’t talk about the amount of songs on ARTPOP in general, I was talking about the amount of MY tracks/ productions on ARTPOP. We worked on a lot of songs and I don’t know which of our collaborations are making the album; she is in creative control of that decision.
