Madeon had some great things to say about Gaga and ARTPOP at Sony’s Xperia Z smartphone launch on Tuesday in London. The ARTPOP producer spoke to Digital Spy, saying:
“She’s great. She’s a really, really interesting and nice person. From a personal standpoint it’s been hugely admirational, to be like, ‘Wow – you’re at this level of super, ultimate fame – and there’s this aura of superstardom – and you’re still an engaging and nice person’. So that was really humbling.”
The praise continued as the DJ talked about their “really impressive” sessions together, adding:
“Professionally, I think she’s amazing. She would come out of a show after singing live for three hours and giving it everything, but just go straight to the studio and record She would still give everything – even on the demo take! She’s really impressive.
I learnt a lot because I don’t really work with vocalists in real life that often. For my previous collaborations I’d never met them while doing the song. It was really interesting for me to feel the vibe of working together, sitting at the piano and collaborating on ideas right away.”
ARTPOP is due later this year.
