The bluesy and country-fried power ballad “Million Reasons,” probably the single best song on Lady Gaga’s new album Joanne, was already a stripped-down affair, especially where Gaga is concerned. And now we get to hear an even more stripped-down version of it. The demo version of “Million Reasons” — which has nothing but piano, acoustic guitar, and two voices — is a bonus track on the Japanese version of Joanne. And it’s fun to hear the eternally high-key Gaga in low-key figuring-things-out-in-the-studio mode. Listen to it below.
Joanne is out now on Interscope/Streamline.
