The name "Joanne" was given to Lady Gaga in honour of her late aunt. She died from lupus when she was just 19 years old.
Although she was never really close with her aunt, she was inspired by the story of her life. In a video for "Joanne," the singer reflects on the loss of her aunt.
The song explains that her aunt Joanne died from lupus when she was only 19 years old. Her family is struggling to cope with her death. It's a sad and emotional track. During the song, a girl named Joanne runs through the woods, singing the lyrics. At the end of the video, the girl runs back into the woods.
While the video isn't particularly original, it's still a powerful and affecting piece. It's also a sweet tribute to her aunt.
"Joanne" is also the name of a song that was previously released by Lady Gaga. According to Gaga, the song was originally written about her aunt. This was during the time that she was collaborating with Tony Bennett on a jazz album. However, the song didn't make the cut for the final track list.
On October 24, 2016, Lady Gaga announced that she would be releasing a new studio album. Despite having three years between albums, she opted to release a new one. She chose to title the album Joanne.
The album is a collection of fourteen songs, and it's largely centered around Gaga's family. In fact, the album's title track is a heartfelt dedication to her aunt.
