Lady Gaga unveils new track Perfect Illusion

Lady Gaga has released her new single, Perfect Illusion.

The song is the first track from her upcoming fifth studio album.

Some Little Monsters – Gaga’s fans – are wondering whether it’s about her split from fiance Taylor Kinney.

?”I don’t need eyes to see/ I felt you touchin’ me/ High like amphetamine/ Maybe you’re just a dream.

“It wasn’t love/ It was a perfect illusion,” she sings.

The 30-year-old US superstar is appearing alongside presenter Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show live on Friday morning.

Perfect Illusion will be the first original track from Gaga for three years, apart from her Academy Award-nominated song ‘Til It Happens To You, which was co-written by Diane Warren for the documentary The Hunting Ground.

Her last top 10 hit in the UK was 2013's Do What U Want with R Kelly from her album Artpop, which went to number nine.

In 2014, she released a collaborative jazz album with singer Tony Bennett called Cheek To Cheek.

Lady Gaga – whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta – has three number one UK albums under her belt, and the re-release of her debut record The Fame, entitled The Fame Monster, also hit the top of the charts.
