Elton John: ARTPOP was not a good album

Elton John says Gaga is going back to her early stuff with the new album. The musician told Beats 1 radio that he'd heard two tracks from Gaga's upcoming album and revealed that he is working on the project as well.

"I've heard two songs which are killer, they're just great songs, it's like back to the early stuff of hers: 'Yoü and I' and the Bruce Springsteen 'Bad Romance.'"

Elton also added that he's not fan of Gaga's controversial 2013 album ARTPOP.

"She made some bad career decisions, ARTPOP was not a good idea, it was not a good album, I think she will admit that," he continued. "I want her to make a simple, fabulous, great song. Maybe like Tapestry, but her version of Tapestry. I've heard two of the songs. They're not complex arrangements, but they're great songs. It's all about the song."
