Lady Gaga launched herself back into the media stratosphere with comeback single ‘Perfect Illusion.’
Billed as the first taste of the singer’s fifth studio album ‘Joanne’ (due October 21st), the track topped the iTunes tally in over 60 countries upon its release last week.
In the time since, its lost a little steam – leaving some worried about her prospects. Others, however, are quick to note that the song’s video is around the corner; hence so too will be the natural lift it lends by way of VEVO streams.
The growing debate has left many wondering about the back of the campaign; what’s to come? What do the other songs sound like? Who’s calling the shots?
Interestingly, Mother Monster gave a inkling as to the latter in a new interview.
See what we mean below…
Speaking on iHeartRadio‘s On Air With Romeo show overnight, the 30-year-old revealed…
“Perfect Illusion was chosen as first single by my record label, we did it together as a team.”
See, on the one hand, even the most hands-on artists still answer to a label. After all, it’s the latter who foot the bill of recording and market the product accordingly so as to make the right financial returns. Viewed this way, there’s nothing particularly shocking about her statement.
Still, it does make one wonder: what else is on the buffet table of tracks ‘Joanne’ will have on offer? Was the strategy to lead with something edgy and placate the public with something familiar with follow-up singles?
Stay tuned to find out!
