It’s a new week and that means that there’s a new [artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] track set for release. On Monday (May 16), Gaga is set to drop “Hair,” another tease from her Born This Way album, due next week.
Fernando Garibay, who worked with Gaga throughout the entire BTW process, spoke to MTV News about “Edge of Glory,” which he co-produced with Gaga and DJ White Shadow, and the appearance of E Street Band member Clarence Clemons on both tracks.
He noted that “it was her idea” to use Clemons on “Hair” as well as “Edge of Glory” and that “she grew up listening to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and she goes, ‘Can we get Clarence?’ And I go, ‘Of course we can get Clarence. You’re Lady Gaga!’ ”
“You can see the years of influence and you can see her lighting up when he’s playing,” Garibay said.
“Hair” was produced by “Judas” producer RedOne, and Garibay had only this to say about it. “I’m gonna leave it up to her to talk about it ’cause, again, these songs are her songs. They’re her vision and all I could do is help express her visions,” he explained. ” ‘Hair’ is a RedOne record and a Lady Gaga record, so they have a great chemistry and I try not to get in the way of that. And I would love it if they would express what the song is about and what it represents.”
As previously reported, fans who buy all the Born This Way singles before the album drops can purchase the entire album at a reduced price on the day of release on iTunes using the Complete My Album feature.
