The star announced on Instagram Tuesday that she’ll drop her newest single, “Perfect Illusion,” on Friday, Sept. 9. Mother Monster revealed the news alongside a photo collage of herself wading through a crowd with a microphone swinging from her hand. The blonde bombshell shows off her expert physique in a crop top and tiny cutoffs, leaning into the music. “LADY GAGA / PERFECT ILLUSION NEW SINGLE SEPT 9,” the caption reads. Last week, she teased fans with some behind-the-scenes photos from shooting a mysterious new project. No word yet on whether the single will be followed by a new music video or an album, but considering the drastic website takeover she orchestrated to announce the news, here’s to hoping it’s something big. After all, the last time Gaga released a new album was back in 2013 when she dropped “Artpop,” meaning she’s officially made fans wait longer than Frank Ocean.
