Little Monsters, rejoice!
Earlier today (Aug. 17), the always innovative Lady Gaga posted a series of 12 Instagram photos creating a mosaic to announce a brand-new single, “Perfect Illusion,” set to debut next month. Both Gaga’s Instagram page and Twitter header have been updated to promote the forthcoming song, which according to the performer will drop sometime in September.
Back in July, it was revealed that Gaga was working on new music with her longtime producer RedOne and that the duo had recorded “eight great songs.” While the “Do What U Want” singer released a jazz collaboration with Tony Bennett back in 2014, the Grammy Award-winning album “Cheek to Cheek,” she hasn’t released a solo album since 2013’s Artpop.
During her musical hiatus, Gaga has been keeping busy with various acting roles.
The singer won a Golden Globe for her performance as The Countess on the FX hit American Horror Story and it was just announced yesterday (August 16) that Gaga will receive her first studio starring role in the Bradley Cooper directed A Star Is Born. Marking Cooper’s directorial debut, Gaga will portray “the ingenue singer whose star rises as quickly as her troubled lover/mentor’s star is falling.”
Pulling double duty, Gaga will also compose and perform new music for the film.
