Lady Gaga is back to making music. The “American Horror Story” actress released her new club-ready, upbeat single “Perfect Illusion” on late Thursday night. This new song is the lead single of Gaga’s up and coming fifth studio album, “LG5.”
Written and produced by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and BloodPop (of Justin Beiber’s “Sorry” fame), “Perfect Illusion” features electronic guitar strings, smooth vocals and an up-tempo music. The electro-dance number is already soaring the charts globally and is the number one song in 27 countries including Brazil, U.S. and U.K.

Gaga’s comeback into the world of pop music comes after almost three years. He fourth studio album, “Artpop,” was released in November 2013. It received mixed reactions.
Gaga took a break from making music and writing songs. Although she collaborated on a Jazz album with the legendary singer Tony Bennett in 2014 named “Cheek To Cheek” and released hit song “Till It Happens To You,” Mother Monster has remained less involved in her music career. An Oscar nomination, a Grammy win and a Golden Globe award later, the 30-year-old songstress is back.
Although it’s been only a few hours since Gaga released “Perfect Illusion,” Little Monsters are already raving about the fiery single. Check out some of the reactions on Twitter below.
Gaga is also poised to appear in the sixth season of FX’s “American Horror Story” which premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 10 p.m. EDT. She is also set to star in “A Star Is Born” opposite Bradley Cooper.
