As promised , Lady Gaga previewed a new song during the Thierry Mugler Paris Men’s Fashion Week show. Gaga remixed a Born This Way track especially for the show, for which she acted as musical director.
Possible Haus of Gaga member Jay tweeted a link to a YouTube video of the song playing during the models’ final walk. “Watch this and f—ing dance,” Jay tweeted.
Reflecting the collection, the song is pulsating and dark. Although the audio is muffled, over a throbbing beat, Gaga’s voice is heard repeating a phrase in German, which YouTube users translated as: “I’m absolutely clear/ As long as I’m a monster/ I wish we all could be blind/ It would be easier out there.”
Gaga was reportedly not at the show. A short film featuring the remixed track, shot by Mariano Vivanco, will appear on Mugler.com and AOL at noon on Thursday (January 19).
Prior to the show’s kickoff, Gaga expressed her excitement about the collaboration. She wrote, “MUGLER PARIS SHOW begins in 2 hours. I am so excited my fashion bones are rattling. The garments + music are poetic intoxication.”
Mugler is helmed by Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Formichetti. In an interview prior to the show, Formichetti described how the song fits with his collection for the legendary fashion house.
“It’s very, very hard, but pop at the same time. It’s really amazing,” he said about the track. “When I heard it, I said, ’That’s Mugler.’ She’s remixing it especially for the show.”
Of working with his longtime pal Gaga, he added, “It’s me and her just having fun and getting very inspired from the idea of Mugler. She’s very much involved, more in the early stages.
“I want people to think, ’OK, there’s something new happening.’ I want people to get excited again, not only fashion people,” he added about his work on the brand. “I’m not here to recreate what [Mugler] did. It was perfect for the time. I’m going to do something for today and the future.”
This isn’t the first time Gaga presented new music at a fashion show.
She premiered “Bad Romance” in 2009 at the Alexander McQueen show.
