With Lady Gaga's long anticipated follow-up to Artpop on the horizon, Elton John just revealed that he will be writing music for her upcoming album, slated for release at as yet unnamed date in 2016. Gaga already has a Golden Globe win and a nomination for an Oscar to add to her list of credentials this year. The Golden Globe was for her turn as the Countess in American Horror Story: Hotel and the Oscar nomination was for the song she penned with Diane Warren, "Til It Happens to You," featured in the recent documentary profiling campus rape entitled The Hunting Ground.

"I'm working with Gaga tomorrow," John said this past Tuesday to Zane Lowe on a Beats 1 radio interview as reported by NME. "I've heard two songs, which are killer. They're just great songs. It's like back to the early stuff of hers - like 'You and I' and the Bruce Springsteen one as I always call it, 'Bad Romance."

Lowe later confirmed that the collaboration is, in fact, happening in a Twitter post.

This is not the first time that the two have worked together, in the past, they collaborated on the Gnomeo & Juliet soundtrack and on the Muppets Thanksgiving episode.

John did offer some criticism in his interview and said that he believes 2013's Artpop should have never been made.

"It was not a good album and I think she would admit that," he said to Lowe. "Then in the midst of that, she did three things which were kind of amazing. She did the whole tour and album with Tony Bennett, which did amazingly well. She sang the Julie Andrews tribute at the Oscars, which everybody loved. And she was on American Horror Story."

Recently, Linda Perry accused Gaga of not writing the song that she was nominated for at the Oscars, "Til It Happens to You," but almost immediately retracted her accusations. The series of tweets where she accused Warren and Gaga of mutually benefiting by giving the pop-star false writing credit on the song have sense been deleted. In the tweets, Perry asserted that Gaga's star power would give the two a push towards winning Best Original Song at the Oscars but has since apologized.
