"As we honor and support the heroic efforts of community health workers, ‘One World: Together at Home’ aims to serve as a source of unity and encouragement in the global fight to end COVID-19,” Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen, said in a statement. “Through music, entertainment and impact, the global live-cast will celebrate those who risk their own health to safeguard everyone else’s."

"This is such a hectic and scary time for all of us, and while I believe art is one the strongest things we have to provide joy and healing to each other during times like this, it just doesn’t feel right to me to release this album with all that is going on during this global pandemic," Lady Gaga explained to Pitchfork.

Despite the album's delay, Lady Gaga recently shared album artwork for the upcoming Chromatica and fans are loving it.
