After wrapping the first date on her dive bar tour Wednesday night (October 5), Lady Gaga shared the studio version of "Million Reasons," the second new cut we've heard from her upcoming album, Joanne, after the lead single "Perfect Illusion."
Unlike "Perfect Illusion," "Million Reasons" is shaped around a melancholy piano line and slowly builds to an all-out rock ballad. Gaga seems to be channeling the proud lineage of sad power ballads, following in the footsteps of Kansas, Poison, Journey, and other '80s bands with arbitrary one-word names.
"I've got a hundred million reasons to walk away," she sings, "but baby, I just need one good one to stay."
Gaga also shared her typewritten lyrics on Twitter, making your upcoming Joanne karaoke party that much easier.
