Is the world ready to feast on the new audio and official third single from Lady Gaga’s latest studio album ARTPOP? The pop provocateur has selected the Zedd-produced track “G.U.Y.” to be the next single from the reverse-Warholian experimentation album.
As one of the standouts (if not the standout) from the album, Gaga’s “G.U.Y.”, if executed and promoted properly, should find the singer back in familiar territory, right at the top of the charts. The track features Gaga’s quirky intelligent with its strong feminist undertones, while being instantly addictive. A formula for success that mirrors that of the icon’s biggest hits (“Poker Face,” “Bad Romance”).
The music video, which has already been shot, will premiere on Dateline NBC on Saturday night.
Details surrounding the music video have already been revealed. At least one portion of the music video has been filmed at the iconic Hearst Castle (pictured below). These scenes will feature Andy Cohen and the entire female cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. More details arose about the music video via Gaga’s official fan website, where she released still image from the visual, which finds what is believed to be a winged (possibly dead?) Gaga lying face-down in a burning desert.
Gaga began promotion of the music video on the Today Show this morning where she revealed a promising Behind The Scenes sneak peak at the upcoming music video. From the looks of it, the visual for “G.U.Y.” will be glitzy, glamorous, and all Gaga.
Interscope Records has now released the radio edit of the latest single, which you can listen to below.
