"Chromatica II" is an interlude by Lady Gaga from her sixth studio album, Chromatica. It serves as the second interlude score from the album, and leads directly into the next track, "911". The piece was written and produced by Gaga and Morgan Kibby.

Background

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Morgan Kibby revealed that "Chromatica II" was the final piece that was composed, and that it was clear to Gaga that it should fall right before "911", an already complete track. She also mentioned how it was one of her favorite moments with Gaga personally —

I remember this moment in the studio so clearly, because she lit up, and without any words I flipped the keyboard around, pulled up the string sound she was envisioning, and she started to play this amazing marcato idea. From there, we massaged it, and I focused on the harmonies and dynamics to make sure it amped the energy up. Ultimately none of us had any idea people would embrace this small moment as such a highlight.
