Lady Gaga wants to record a Christmas album of jazz standards.

The ‘Hair’ hitmaker is planning to eschew her usual electro pop sound to make a record of traditional jazz hits for the festive period.

She told the Financial Times newspaper: “I thought it would be really sweet to do a Christmas release of Gaga and the jazz standards. I really want to do it. I’ve spoken to my manager.”

Giving a possible preview, the ‘Born This Way’ star recently gave a rendition of jazz track ‘Orange Colored Sky’ when she performed in England.

The 25-year-old musician has also spoken of her admiration for British singer Adele, who she is set to knock from the top of the album charts with her ‘Born This Way’ album this week, ending a 16-week run by the ‘Someone Like You’ singer.

Gaga said: “I’m so excited for Adele. She’s doing so well all over the world and it’s wonderful to see the world embrace her. She’s beaten some of my chart records but I’m happy for her. I love seeing women succeed and she’s so talented.”
