With Lady Gaga fans eagerly awaiting the release of Born This Way‘s first single, which is expected to be the album’s title track, details about the rest of the recording are slowly emerging. Late Tuesday, Lady Gaga tweeted to thank her fans for making “Edge of Glory” a Twitter-trending topic. “Edge of Glory” is expected to be one of the track titles on the album.
“Ok. Firstly, yes I love Nutella (with Banana+Wonderbread) who doesn’t?” Mother Monster wrote. “Secondly, I can’t believe Edge of Glory was trending, sneakymonsters! Thirdly, I need a beer with my name on it cause the last 72hrs gave me a creative hangover.”
Gaga apparently has been making references to the song as far back as September, when she tweeted, “I’m on the edge of glory, and I’m counting on a moment of truth. I’m on the edge of glory, and I’m counting on a moment with you.”
Meanwhile, her best friends, New York band Semi Precious Weapons, also have been hinting at what fans might expect from Born This Way, which is set for release in May. “Just as she described it. It’s amazing, epic,” Weapons frontman Justin Tranter target="_blank">explained in a recent Q&A. “The most incredible album I’ve ever heard.”
In addition, Gaga producer RedOne recently put in his two cents about the singer’s new material, saying that her forthcoming single was “so beautiful.
Last week, a track off the album that Gaga remixed accompanied a short film by fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco that was shown at a Mugler fashion show in Paris. Discussing the tune, Vivanco said Mugler creative director and Gaga stylist Nicola Formichetti had found “a really articulate way” to describe it — ” ‘It’s techno meets Whitney Houston, in a really good way.’ “
