Following the release of her sixth studio album, Lady Gaga has now partnered with Apple Music for a weekly radio show— “Gaga Radio.”

The pop diva released Chromatica earlier this year, an album that marked the return of her theatrical and dance-pop sounds which established her career back in 2011. The album is said to also be one of her most personal, yet. Tackling heavy matters such as PTSD triggers, antipsychotic meds and sexual assault. 

Described as an offshoot of the recent album, the radio show will highlight the origins and creative process behind her new album through interviews with individuals who worked on and inspired the project. 

"The last few weeks I've been figuring out different ways at home that I can be of service to what I would call the singular global community, one that I believe to be kind in nature, one that I believe to be very special to my heart and I believe to the hearts of many,” Gaga said of the show — which will also feature exclusive DJ mixes from her guests — in a press statement. "And so I've been thinking of all the ways that I can be someone that contributes to the society and the world. I'm super thrilled, excited to have this show and this opportunity to play an incredible mix of music every week."

The first episode premiering this week, will feature one of her “Chromatica” producers, BloodPop, to discuss the making of the album and the challenges that came along with it, including depression and self-doubt during the making of it. 

"Chromatica for me, was the portal that you and I opened in the studio where we would open the portal and I'd go, 'Okay, talent, creativity, voice from above, sign from above, come inside me, tell me what to say, tell me what to do,' and most all of it was what I was truly feeling," Gaga says on the episode. "There was really only two things that could happen to me on any given day. I could either write a song and you'd be there to capture it, or I'd be upstairs on the porch and I wouldn't write the song. I would just stare into the open sky and chain smoke cigarettes and cry."

Tune in to Gaga Radio every Friday at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT on Apple Music.
