Lady GaGa is getting a headstart on her next album - she's recording tracks in a mini studio on her tourbus. The "Poker Face" hitmaker is currently traveling the world with her "Monster Ball" tour but she hasn't stopped work on her next album, according to R&B singer Akon, who signed her to his KonLive label in 2007.
The pop star has reportedly written the majority of the follow-up to 2009's "The Fame" between concerts. He tells Vibe magazine, "She records while she's on the road. I'm flying out to Europe to work on some new records with her. GaGa's just like me. She has a tour bus with a studio in it. Some of the songs I've heard are going to be crazy. She's getting bigger and better."
And Akon admits he no longer interferes with GaGa's work - because she's focused on the sound she wants. He adds, "All I'm doing at the end of the day is listening to the tracks GaGa has written and approving them for her album. She has producers that she works with outside of myself and they are coming up with some incredible records. But the beauty of it is she knows exactly what she wants. So it just makes it easier for me."
