Lady GaGa goes 'less electro and straightforward pop' in this third single of 'Born This Way', getting a boast from Clarence Clemons' sax solo.
Lady GaGa's third single "The Edge of Glory", coming from her soon-to-be-released studio album "Born This Way", has just surfaced. The Mother Monster shows off her softer side, singing in all her glory in the name of love on this summer jam filler.
"I'm on the edge of glory and hanging on a moment of truth," she declares. "I'm on the edge of glory and I'm hanging on a moment with you." Adding the big chorus is a saxophone solo by Clarence Clemons of The E Street Band.
Lady GaGa co-wrote and co-produced the single along with Fernando Garibay and DJ White Shadow. Taking inspiration from her late grandfather, she said the song is "about your last moment on earth, the moment of truth, the moment before you leave earth."
Lady GaGa is going to drop "Born This Way" across the United States on May 23. She has done a lot of promotional appearances, but Little Monsters will see more of her since she's set to do another massive tour this summer. Rumor has it, she will kick it off with a concert on "Good Morning America".
