Listen: Lady Gaga is back with her Perfect Illusion

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the best part of eight years, you’ll be familiar with pop titan Lady Gaga – and now she’s back with brand new track Perfect Illusion, the video for which has been unveiled today.

The living hit machine might have been laying low a bit – instead lending her hand to a spot of acting and even, inexplicably, farming – but now she’s back.

Her new single is heavy with her familiar, powerful vocals, dance beats and a key change that floored us. She’s also confirmed that her new album, LG5, will be dropping later this year, which rounds off an incredible 2016 for the pop icon, with Superbowl, Oscars and Grammy performances under her belt, as well as that Golden Globe win.

LG5 rumours had been circulating for a while, and with good reason – her list of producers is like a who’s who of music royalty, and she’s even confirmed that superstar Florence Welch would also be joining her on the album.

She’s been teasing us for a while with visuals and snippets of lyrics, but here it actually is. Check out the video for Perfect Illusion below:
