Lady Gaga and Florence Welch Collaborated on a Duet for Her New Album
Lady Gaga and Florence Welch have collaborated on a duet for her new album, which just saw the release of the lead single, "Perfect Illusion."
“There’s a feature on the album that I think you will be very excited about,” Gaga said to BBC Radio 1, Billboard reports. “Me and Florence Welch 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.”
Once Gaga spilled the beans on the collaboration with Florence Welch, fans began going wild on Twitter.
Billboard further reported that her new single "Perfect Illusion" was the most shared on Twitter in the 24 hours before noon on Sept. 8, and had only been available for about 13 hours at that time.
Of the new single Gaga said at the iHeartRadio Music Summit, "The song is about modern ecstasy... We found our sweet, simple, rage way of saying it... I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it."
Gaga had been leaving hints for fans all week about the upcoming single “Perfect Illusion,” and had also shared other collaborators on the track, including Mark Ronson and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. The producer for Justin Bieber and Grimes, BloodPop, was also involved with the production. She also posted a short snippet of the track to Twitter and released the cover art for the new single.
