Rejoice Little Monsters, Mother Monster is set to make her grand return to the music scene in September!
Lady Gaga took to Instagram to surprise fans with news of her upcoming single in a series of colourful mosaic Insta-posts, revealing that “Perfect Illusion” will be arriving as soon as next month. Are you super excited yet?
There’s no word yet on what the new single will sound like, but Billboard has confirmed that “Perfect Illusion” was produced by Mark Ronson, BloodPop, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, and Gaga herself. Fans will soon get their first taste of Gaga’s new non-soundtrack, non-Tony Bennett music since she last released 2013’s underrated “Artpop”.
Mark Ronson previously gave a little insight into his collaboration with Gaga and what everyone can expect from her new analog sound in her 5th studio album (let’s just call it “LG5” until we get an official title).
“She’s kind of a muso at heart. She’s the happiest when she’s sitting at a piano barking orders at the drummer, and I don’t think that’s the side of her the world has seen. They’ve seen the massive pop singles and tours and dance numbers, so it’s really great to make this very honest, authentic, analog kind of record with her,” the superstar producer said.
Just yesterday, it was announced that the 30-year-old singer will be taking on her first starring role in a feature film. The star has sign on to appear in Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, “A Star Is Born”, which is a musical remake about an aspiring young starlet who arrives in Hollywood to pursue her dreams of becoming a star.
Get your paws up Little Monsters, it’s time to welcome our favourite singer back with a loud applause!
