In her 'On-Air With Ryan Seacrest' interview, Gaga called in and described 'Born,' out May 23, as eclectic -- to say the least. "I explore lots of different genres in tandem with dance music and electronic music and industrial music," says Gaga. "I expanded even further in that area.'
Lady Gaga told Seacrest that the entire album was written and co-produced by her. Second single, 'Judas,' which will come out several weeks before the album, was co-produced along with Gaga by her long-time collaborator RedOne.
She described song, 'Hair,' as an uptempo dance tack with some 'Bruce Springsteen vibe.' Coincidentally, the song features Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band on sax. The uptempo track features lyrics like, "Whenever I dress cool, my parents put up a fight, and if I'm a hot shot, mom will cut off my hair at night. And in the morning, I'm sort of my identity. I scream mom and dad, why can't I be who I wanna be" with chorus, "I've had enough. This is my prayer, that I'll die living as free as my hair."
"It kind of has this Kiss-, Iron Maiden-esque anthem to it, and I love it,' says Gaga.
She didn't want to give away too many song titles but revealed that two of her favorites were 'Marry The Night' and 'Government Hooker.' Seacrest told Gaga that he would love to help her shoot the video for 'Hooker,' which she described as having "really filthy" lyrics. Would we expect anything less?
Gaga also made music history by shooting straight to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart with 'Born This Way,' becoming the 1,000th top song in its 52-year history.
