LISTEN: Lady Gaga Releases Brand New Music

'Perfect Illusion' is the first single from the singer in three years.

Lady Gaga has been keeping quiet over the last few years but has now unveiled her new single to the world.

The song, which was composed with producer Mark Ronson and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker.] with the Queen's of the Stone Age's John Homme providing the opening guitar riff.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw, the singer said, "Kevin flew to us from Australia and he came with this idea, that was the beginning of a song called Illusion. I work on a typewriter and we would bounce new lyrics back and forth. We stripped everything away. Changed the melody, shifted it. I sat at piano, Kevin was on guitar, Mark was on the bass."

She revealed that the song is a commentary on the modern world of social media and how people present the ideal versions of themselves on their online profiles when actually that's not who they are at all.

"How do we navigate through social media? How do we look through these images that we know are filtered and altered, and decipher what is reality and what is a perfect illusion?

"There are also a lot of things on the internet that are not reality. And I think people are pressured to keep that personal illusion going on in their real lives.

"So this song is about raging against it and letting it go. It's about wanting people to re-establish that human connection."

As well as releasing her newest song, Lady Gaga also revealed an impressive duet partner.

"Me and Florence Welch [Florence & The Machine] did a duet together. I started to work on an idea for a song that I really wanted to do with a girl. You’ll see why when you see what the song is about. I just thought, ‘Who do I want to sing with?’ She’s really to me if not the best, one of the greatest vocalists in the world. She’s incredible." 

That's certainly one to watch out for!
