Lady Gaga Announces New Single “Perfect Illusion”
Thu, 18 Aug 2016 09:54:52
A few months ago, it was reported that Gaga, Ronson and Parker were working together when Ronson posted a photo of the trio working together in the studio to his Instagram, and yesterday he shared an impressive display of Gaga Artwork.
Speaking during an appearance at iHeartRadio HQ in New York City Gaga said, "The song is about modern ecstasy . . . .We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it," adding "I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it."
Back in January, Elton John revealed he was working on Lady Gaga's new album, and that she was returning to an ‘old school' approach. "Perfect Illusion" is Gaga's first single release since "Til It Happens to You," the accompanying song to the documentary film, The Hunting Ground. The track became the first song to be nominated for an Emmy, GRAMMY, and Oscar in the same year.
Lady Gaga last released Cheek to Cheek, a collaborative album with Tony Bennett, back in 2014. Her last solo record, Artpop, came out in 2013. There has been no mention of a title or release date for Gaga's upcoming record, but we hope the forthcoming single signals that something will be coming soon.
Ronson and Parker collaborated previously on Ronson's 2015 LP Uptown Special.
