Earlier this month, Lady Gaga released her highly anticipated new single "Perfect Illusion." The track, in which Gaga realizes a romance wasn't what she thought it was, had us dancing from the first note. Now it's Gaga's turn to bust a move, as she just released a high-energy music video for the song.
Gaga starts the clip swinging her microphone against a blue sky. There are no meat dresses or armadillo heels in sight. Instead, Gaga rocks a basic black T-shirt and denim cut-offs, kicking up desert sand with her sturdy boots. Things get a little flashier later in the video when she changes into silver shorts, but it's still a far cry from the avant-garde looks we're used to. After three years without a new solo album, it makes sense that she would be evolving.
She certainly seems to have saved up a lot of energy over those years, as this video is a non-stop dance party from beginning to end, whether Gaga is by herself or rocking out in a crowd.
The desert seems to be a popular setting for music videos these days. Earlier this week, Fifth Harmony released a video for "That's My Girl" that gave us some serious Mad Max flashbacks.
Lady Gaga's new album Joanne is scheduled to drop October 21. The title is a tribute to her aunt, who died of lupus at 19 years old.
