Dawn of Chromatica is a remix compilation by Lady Gaga including remixes of songs from Chromatica. It was released on September 3, 2021, through Interscope and Streamline Records.

The remix album features collaborations with numerous acts, such as Arca, Rina Sawayama, Pabllo Vittar, Charli XCX, Ashnikko, Shygirl, Dorian Electra, Bree Runway and so on, while retaining the contributions of Ariana Grande, Blackpink and Elton John from the original album.

Background

On April 4, 2021, BloodPop wrote on Twitter about the possibility of a Chromatica remix album and asked followers to suggest which artists they would like to see on it. Later, he replied himself tagging Rina Sawayama, who answered it with a smirking emoji. He also confirmed he is working on a Charli XCX remix of "911" and would include an early version of "Babylon", from which a snippet was previously featured in a Haus Laboratories ad. On May 8, also on Twitter, BloodPop revealed that Dorian Electra will be on the album. They were later revealed to have remixed "Replay". During an interview at the 2021 Brit Awards, Sawayama talked about the project, stating "the wish is on the internet, and I've done my bit, let's just say that. So, it's in the works". On May 12, Charli XCX confirmed that the creation process of the "911" remix has begun. The track will feature production from producer A.G. Cook. Later that month, Bree Runway revealed she was involved with the remix album in an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show, before confirming she would appear on the "Babylon" remix by tweeting its lyrics on August 10. The same day, Ashnikko confirmed her involvement and Gaga acknowledged the album for the first time, dubbing it "so f*cking fuego" in a tweet. Pabllo Vittar hinted that she would be featured on a "Fun Tonight" remix on Twitter while Lil Texas confirmed his involvement by posting a short snippet of his "Sine From Above" remix. The album will also feature Arca on "Rain On Me" and Shygirl with production from Mura Masa on "Sour Candy".

Artwork

On August 30, 2021, an artwork was revealed via Lady Gaga's social networks with the announcement of compilation's date release.

The original cover image of Chromatica is embedded in almost every detail of Down Of Chromatica's artwork. For example, it's visible how the original one is reflected from the metal frame in the cover image designed by Team Rolfes. Talking about the creation of Down Of Chromatica's artwork, a designer Sam Rolfes from Team Rolfes revealed on August 30, 2021 via his Twitter account that "the original cover is embedded in almost every piece, we [Team Rolfes] started with it as the foundation and grew the 3D forms from it, taking a lot of care to retain photographic references to the original — and splicing in a little Sour Candy fairy DNA along the way."

On September 2, 2021, Sam Rolfes uploaded on his Google Drive individual fragments of the artwork, "for anyone who wants to remix their own" and shared it via his Twitter account.
