Lady Gaga is laying it out all on the line in the name of song.
It's been years since the the six-time Grammy winner released a studio album, leaving fans eagerly waiting to get their hands on a new melody from Mother Monster.
While she's been able to tide over audiences with her Oscar-nominated ballad "Til It Happens to You," written for the campus rape documentary The Hunting Ground, Gaga has been busy earning a Golden Globe for her leading role on American Horror Story: Hotel.
Friday marked her grand return to the airwaves when she released her newest single, "Perfect Illusion," a track packed with a rock punch. Despite the relatively new sound for the pop star, it still has a pulsing dance beat to get you in the mood to groove. It even gets Gaga's heart pumping when it's on.
"The song is about modern ecstasy," Gaga described the track at the iHeartRadio Music Summit in August. "We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it... I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it."
