Lady Gaga - "Applause (Purity Ring Remix)"

Purity Ring are stomping with the big dogs now. Lady Gaga has roped the Toronto spectral-synth duo into doing an official remix of “Applause,” her kinda-desperate new drama-nerd anthem. For the reworking, Purity Ring producer Corin Roddick removed everything besides the vocal track and built the gasping goth-dance track around it. Whatever Roddick does to “Applause,” though, it still sounds very much like a Lady Gaga song. Listen to it below.

  1. First Wild Beasts, then The Weeknd, now Purity Ring? Gaga knows what up

  2. gaga is nothing more than an opportunist.
    how much longer before she changes aesthetics (again) in an attempt to stay relevant?

  3. This is by far one of her worst songs lyrically.

  4. would have been better off bookin shlohmo to gut the original and dredge out some real substance

  5. Not every musical act from Canada is from Toronto or Montreal, they are from Edmonton.

  6. “Kinda desperate drama-nerd anthem” is the perfect way to define this song, Tom. Kudos.

  7. i think she said she hadn’t planned for this song to be on the album, let alone become the lead single, but execs at interscope convinced her otherwise. while i respect the intent behind the song, it’s not what i was expecting
