Lady Gaga is shaping 2016 into a big comeback year, as the pop star is working with various producers on an album due out this year. In a new interview with Beats1 Radio, one of those collaborators, Mark Ronson, revealed that he is in fact helping to shape LG5, and spilled some details about the highly anticipated project.

The "Uptown Funk" GRAMMY winner tells radio host Zane Lowe that he is about to go back in the booth with Gaga in Los Angeles.

“We just spent some time in the studio when she was in London. I know her from just before she got really massive, when she came and sang a song on a Wale record I worked on called ‘Chillin.’ I grew up in New York on the Upper West Side, she did too," Mark explained (via Idolator). "She’s kind of like a muso at heart—she loves just sitting at a piano and barking orders at a drummer and she has an incredible voice. She’s one of the great voices in pop music, so we’re going to start with the songs and go from there.”

Ronson (who wants to work with One Direction's Harry Styles) joins fellow artists like Nile Rodgers and Elton John, who are both reportedly working on Lady Gaga's fifth album. The Fame producer RedOne also reunited with the singer back in September. Click here to listen to his Beats 1 interview.
