Leave a comment


Brace yourselves, Lady Gaga fans, because we’ll all be in possession of the pop star’s new single very soon!

The “Born This Way” singer took to Twitter on Tuesday (Sept. 9) to tease that her first single off of LG5 would be dropping on Sept. 9.

Gaga announced the big news in a series of tweets, each showcasing a different photo. In one of her posts, the singer even teased fans with a few lyrics from the track, pairing the words with a collage of photos of herself and snippets of the lines written in what appear to be her handwriting.

The last tweet she posed reminded fans of the release date of the single, and also included a photo of  the artwork for the track.

The image features Gaga mid-jump with a microphone in her hand, hair billowing in the wind above her. The singer is set against the backdrop of a setting sun, and both Gaga’s name and the title of the track are featured in the upper left hand corner.

In an interview with iHeart Radio earlier this summer, the Mother Monster opened up about her brand new single, saying the song tells the tale of the highs and lows that go hand-in-hand with a failed relationship.

“This song is about modern ecstasy,” Gaga told the outlet. “We found our sweet, simple, rage way of saying it.”

We’ll definitely be looking forward to listening to Gaga’s new single in just a few days time!
