Lady Gaga Shares New Details About Her New Single ‘Perfect Illusion’

Lady Gaga previewed her lead single from LG5, “Perfect Illusion,” at iHeartRadio’s Music Summit in New York on Wednesday (Aug. 17, 2016), prior to its announcement on social media.

Gaga told the audience that the song, produced by Mark Ronson and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, is “about modern ecstasy.”

“We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it,” explained Gaga.

As Idolator reports, a writer for iHeartRadio described the song as “a cut that touches the highest of highs and lowest of lows in a relationship gone wrong, thus, the perfect illusion.”
