Lady Gaga was in her hometown on Sunday night and gave her fellow New Yorkers a special treat. Sitting in her car, she played a new track off her forthcoming album for gathered fans.
In barely audible footage posted online, the dance track plays in the background — the majority of what is heard in the video is the club-banging beat. Gaga sits in the backseat of an SUV as fans call the track "amazing." The 38-second clip ends with the Mother Monster driving away from her fans.
Shortly after the encounter, fans began tweeting about meeting the singer and getting the preview. One fan wrote, "Just met GaGa! She was playing a song from her new album! ... It was a very heavy dance/club song! The beat was f---ing insane!"
Another person who was there said that the song might end up being the first released off Gaga's forthcoming album. "I asked her if it was the new single she looked at me and shook her head yes and said shhhhh," the fan tweeted.
Gaga will reveal the name of her new album in September. Last week she hinted that the first song off the LP is produced by longtime collaborator DJ White Shadow, who worked with Gaga on Born This Way singles "Born This Way" and "The Edge of Glory."
While fans might have to wait a little longer to hear more of this new track, Gaga has been playing a song called "Princess Die" while on tour. If this new untitled track is any indication, Gaga is focusing on making pure dance music, something she implied while out on the road.
"Let's just say I feel, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity," she said. "And I feel that on the next album there's a lack of maturity — it's a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility."
