Lady Gaga: 'Perfect Illusion is about wanting people to re-establish human connection.'


Lady Gaga is currently in Europe to promote her newly released single 'Perfect Illusion' which is currently on number 1 spot of iTunes charts in over 60 countries and is being praised by huge publications including E! which describes the song as "equal parts rock anthem and dance floor mega hit."



Earlier today, Lady Gaga visited United Kingdom's BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show as a guest co-host. Chatting with radio host Nick Grimshaw, Gaga talks about her new music and shares a story on how 'Perfect Illusion' was composed in collaboration with brilliant music artists such as Mark Ronson, Kevin Parker, and Bloodpop. "Kevin flew to U.S. from Australia and he came with this idea, that was the beginning of a song called Illusion. I worked on a typewriter and we would bounce new lyrics back and forth", Gaga said. Talking about the making of the song's instrumentals, Gaga told Nick: "We stripped everything away. Changed the melody, shifted it. I sat at piano, Kevin was on guitar, Mark was on the bass."



Lady Gaga also shared the meaning of her new song and revealed that it's about fighting against people's own 'personal Illusions', saying: "I believe many of us are wondering why there are so many fake things around us. I think people are pressured to keep that personal illusion going on in their real lives. So this song is about raging against it and letting it go. It's about wanting people to re-establish that human connection."



During the interview, Lady Gaga also confirmed that she recorded a duet with English musician Florence Welch for her new studio album, which is scheduled for release this year. She also revealed that American singer Beck is also featured on it.
