Was the remarkably suggestive birthing video for the original version of ‘Born This Way’ not enough for you? Well, Lady Gaga has a surprise, and this time she’s appealing to all of the country music fans out there.

In true country fashion, there’s a harmonica and an acoustic guitar as Gaga belts out the inspirational lyrics that initially made the song a smash hit. Gone are the thumping drums and bassline — and also the similarities to Madonna’s “Express Yourself” that so many people pointed out with the dance version of the tune. Check it out:

Gaga calls this the “Country Road Version” of the song, and surprised the world with it via Twitter. On Thursday, she posted: “Surprise Monsters!: Born This Way (The Country Road Version) will be released on Twitter tomorrow at 12am PST/3am EST 3/25.” Then, just as promised, she unveiled it to the world by saying: “The Country Road Version of Born This Way. Produced By: Me + Fernando. Photo By: @popjustice.”

The world will have to wait until May for Gaga’s full album (also titled ‘Born This Way’), so this remix will hopefully keep her most rabid fans at bay while they await the real thing.

Ever the workhorse, Gaga hasn’t been resting during the lead-up to the album. She recently hit Oakland, California for a concert, and will be hitting Nevada and New Mexico this weekend.
