Lady Gaga Announces New Single, “Perfect Illusion”

Calling all Little Monsters!

It looks like we’re entering a new era of Lady Gaga. After the singer announced this week that she is releasing a cookbook with her father and will co-star in the latest remake of A Star is Born—but she saved the biggest news for last when she surprised her fans this morning with an announcement on Instagram of a new single.

“Lady Gaga New Single September Perfect Illusion” read the colorful tiles in the Instagram grid. A very different look from her dark Born This Way days.

Gaga has been working on her new album with prolific producer Mark Ronson. “She’s a muso at heart…it’s really great to make this very honest, authentic, analog kind of record with her,” Ronson said in an interview with Charlie Rose.

Elton John also dropped some hints when he revealed he had listened to a select few songs from the record: “I’ve heard two or three songs from her new record, which she’s making with Mark Ronson, and it’s absolutely brilliant,” John told Beats 1 back in June. “So you’re gonna be really happy when you hear that later in the year or early next year.”
