Lady Gaga's return to the pop music scene is just a few weeks away and iHeartRadio got the very first listen of her brand-new single, "Perfect Illusion," when the industry titan appeared at our Music Summit on Wednesday morning (August 17).
In collaboration with super-producer Mark Ronson and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, "Perfect Illusion” finds a sweet space in Mother Monster’s catalogue alongside some of her best dance floor anthems. It’s a cut that touches the highest of highs and lowest of lows in a relationship gone wrong, thus, the perfect illusion.
And, yes, that kind of vibrant energy was evident when the trio worked on the heartbreak anthem at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California. Gaga recalled the sunlight pouring through the trees in the window as the record came to fruition. "I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it,” she added.
Lady Gaga's new single Perfect Illusion comes out next month.
