The renaissance of Lady Gaga continues!

The singer called in to Z100 to catch up with famed deejay Elvis Duran Friday, opening up about her emotional, triumphant Academy Awards performance and upcoming projects.

Here are the highlights from her chat with Duran.

Little Monsters, Rejoice: There's New Music on the Way.
Gaga, 29, hasn't released a solo album since 2013's ARTPOP – but she assured Duran a new album is coming: "Definitely, yes! Yes!" she said.

Since ARTPOP, she's been busy collaborating with her pal Tony Bennett, with whom she released an LP of jazz standards, which won a Grammy. But Gaga's been back in the studio: In January 2015, she posted a shot with RedOne, the producer behind her 2008 breakout The Fame.

She'll Return to American Horror Story ... Sometime.
Last year, Gaga made her debut as a leading lady in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story: Hotel, picking up her first acting award at the Golden Globes in January for her turn as the blood-thirsty Countess.

But the specifics of her return to the FX hit are still shrouded in mystery, as she told Duran she'll be back, but – "I can't promise you how or when or anything like that!"

She Says Her Moving Oscars Performance Made People See Her as 'a Human Being' – 'for the First Time in 10 Years'

On Sunday, the singer performed her Best Original Song-nominated, rape-inspired ballad "Til It Happens to You," and sexual assault survivors joined her on the Oscars stage, leaving many in the audience in tears.

Gaga had a chance to meet and bond with the survivors during rehearsals for the show – a cathartic experience for the pop icon, who was raped when she was 19.

"I have people everyday look at me like a celebrity, and that day was the first time in 10 years that I was looked at like a human being," she told Duran of working with the survivors, with whom she now has matching tattoos.

The singer is hopeful that by using her platform at the Academy Award will be a "turning point for the world" when it comes to the dialogue about sexual assault.

"This is how it should be in Hollywood; that's why these people and I are all here," she said. "We're here not to just tell stories, but we're here also to make a difference and have a voice."
