“Just wrapped my 5th music video, can’t wait to unfold all its secrets and share with you moments from my past I have yet to reveal,” she said on the site. “Put Born This Way back in the vessel, for rebirth, as I lay in mine. When too strong to divorce, then buckle up, MARRY THE NIGHT.”
Gaga shot the video earlier this month in her hometown. She was spotted all over town filming scenes for the Born This Way single’s video , including at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island.
“This is my favorite song on the album. Are you ready [producer] @FERNANDOGARIBAY?” she said. “This one is our baby.”
In the MTV News documentary “Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside,” the singer recalled the time Born This Way musical director Fernando Garibay first played the church bell-filled track that would become the inspiration for “Marry the Night.” “It’s like Whitney, but imagine if Bruce Springsteen had a baby with Whitney Houston — that’s what it is,” she said. “And that was it! We made a baby. Finally.”
In addition to getting philosophical about the clip, Gaga also shared the cover art for the single, the fifth off her chart-topping album.
“Do you want the #MARRY THE NIGHT SINGLE COVER tonight?” Mother Monster asked her dedicated legion of fans. “If monsters make MARRY THE NIGHT SINGLE COVER the number one trending topic I will release it tonight. Early. SORRY INTERSCOPE! I LOVE THEM!”
After Twitter blocked all chances to get the trend going, Gaga defied the rules and released the art anyway. “Even better, you pissed [off] Twitter. Be prepared to Marry the Night at 8pm PST,” she said before dropping it with this message: “New York is Not Just a Tan that You’ll Never Lose.”
In the picture, Gaga is dressed in leather, shaking her blond hair around. She’s posing on the wet hood of a car while a fire burns behind her. It looks to be a scene from the video. No word yet on when the clip will premiere.
