It's happening. Following ARTPOP and an ill-informed jazz album, Queen of pop Lady Gaga has returned with one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
Perfect Illusion is the first single off a forthcoming fifth album and it was worked on with Kevin Parker, Mark Ronson and Bloodpop which is a pretty stunning team.
As expected, it's a little bit of a sonic shift for Gaga, injecting something new and raw into her sound, stripping her somewhat of her theatrics.
Ronson's expected to have been an integral part in the new album which is good news indeed.
Welcome back Gaga. Please stay away from Tony Bennett and hang out more with these guys.
