The song is Gaga’s first solo release in almost three years, following 2013’s Artpop album.

Lady Gaga has dropped her comeback single, ‘Perfect Illusion’.

The disco-rock track was co-produced by Gaga alongside Mark Ronson, Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker and Grimes/Justin Bieber collaborator Bloodpop (fka Blood Diamonds). It’s taken from her as-yet-untitled fifth album.

As reported by Billboard, ‘Perfect Illusion’ is about “modern ecstasy. “We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it… I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it,” explains Gaga.

Tame Impala and Lady Gaga were rumoured to be collaborating back in May after a studio photo was posted of the pair by Mark Ronson. Bloodpop is also featured in the same photo.

In January, Gaga revealed that disco legend Giorgio Moroder is working on her new studio LP, later confirming the album at this year’s Golden Globes. It will be her first full-length effort since joining forces with Tony Bennett for their jazz LP Cheek to Cheek in 2014, and her first set of original recordings since 2013’s Artpop.
