Lady Gaga premieres another track from 'Born This Way'
Tuesday 10 May 2011
Little Monsters - the singer's devoted fans - are rejoicing again with the advance release on May 9 of Lady Gaga’s latest single, "The Edge of Glory."
Gaga promises to unveil another track, "Hair," from her upcoming album next Monday, May 16.
"The Edge of Glory" was released on iTunes, but you can stream an audio version of the track on the star’s VEVO channel. So far the page has had more than 560,000 views.
The new release follows Gaga's May 5th premiere of her Fellini-inspired video for "Judas," where she portrays Mary Magdalene riding in a motorcycle pack with Jesus Christ and his apostles in what she has described as a "modern-day Jerusalem."
"Like [the] first single 'Born This Way,' 'The Edge of Glory' leans upon sunny electronica that ramps up during its anthemic chorus," describes Billboard, "and while 'Glory' also glorifies risk-taking, it's focused on romance rather than individual inspiration."
"The song's production harks back to late '80s, early '90s adult-contemporary pop, when big choruses [were] the norm," writes MTV US.
"Edge of Glory" is the third single from her forthcoming LP Born This Way . "Judas" has reached the top ten in singles charts in some 18 countries. The album's title track, "Born This Way," which dropped on February 11, peaked at number one in 17 countries and is the fastest-selling single in iTunes history, selling more than 1 million copies in five days.
