Lady Gaga hasn’t put out much music in the past few years, but she’s been making her singles count. Last year, she contributed “Till It Happens To You” to the campus rape documentary The Hunting Ground, and last month, she announced that she was teaming up with the dream-team of Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Mark Ronson, and BloodPop to write and produce her new single “Perfect Illusion.” That single has now arrived, and you can listen to it below.
Josh Homme plays guitar on it too:

The new single will, of course, be followed by an album somewhere down the line, and that album may include a duet with Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine. Per The Independent, Gaga told Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw: “There’s a feature on the album that I think you will be very excited about. 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.”
“Perfect Illusion” is out now on Interscope.
