When [artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] debuts her music video for “Judas” on Thursday, we’ll be one step closer to the release of what she once called “the greatest album of this decade.” And on Monday, she tweeted the track listing for Born This Way, which hits the streets on May 23.
The “original” album tracks include “Marry the Night,” “Born This Way,” “Government Hooker,” “Judas,” “Americano,” “Hair,” “Scheibe,” “Bloody Mary,” “Bad Kids,” “Highway Unicorn (Road to Love),” “Heavy Metal Lover,” “Electric Chapel,” “You and I” and “Edge of Glory.”
The “special edition” will have five more tracks. “Born This Way Country Road Version,” “Judas DJ White Shadow Remix,” “Marry the Night Fernando Garibay Remix,” “Scheibe DJ White Shadow Mugler” and “Fashion of His Love Fernando Garibay Remix.”
DJ White Shadow spoke to MTV News earlier this year and about the album. “I don’t even know how to explain it. [Born This Way] is not a pop album; it’s a pop masterpiece of music. If there was no category of pop music, you wouldn’t call it pop music,” he said.
“She thinks of sh– that I can’t comprehend,” he added. “It doesn’t make sense to me, and I’m a creative person. … Working with her is totally different than anyone else I’ve ever done anything with. She’s the most hands-on person I’ve ever run into. She could walk into Steve Jobs’ office and tell him he’s doing Apple wrong, and he’d listen. As a producer, it’s super cool to be with somebody who generally cares and is fully involved.”
Gaga also tweeted her excitement over the “Judas” video. “JUDASVIDEO PREMIERE 5.5.11 on E! 7/6c + 11:30/10c. Motorcycle Fellini PopArt FantasyFilm + Haus Directorial Debut,” she shared and tweeted an image from the video. In it, Gaga rides a motorcycle and leads a gang as they ride a highway.
