Debuting the sad song during her Melbourne gig, the 'Marry the Night' singer tells the crowd, 'So this song may or may not be on my next album.'
Lady GaGa has a special treat for her devoted fans in Melbourne. During her concert in the Australian city on Tuesday night, June 26, the Mother Monster gave a first listen to her new song called "Princess Die". Sitting on her motorbike-shaped piano, the eccentric songstress told the crowd that she still doesn't know if the ballad track would be included in her next album.
"So this song may or may not be on my next album. I wrote it a little while ago and I've never ever played it for anyone," the New York-born singer said. "I'm going to play it because, actually, I've been really excited and impressed with how many super fans have been at every show. I truly feel it would be a disservice to all of you to not play it before I leave."
Explaining the meaning of her new song, GaGa dished, "So this song is a little bit sad and it's in no way reflective of the rest of the music on the album, but it's about some of the most personal thoughts I've ever had. It's called 'Princess Die', D-I-E."
"Leave the coffin open when I go/And leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows," so she sang the sad song, which was said to have a suicidal theme. "I wish I could cope, but I took pills and left a note/I'm hungry from an anorexic heart/I've been trying to tell you how I feel, but was never very smart/I'm wrapped in silks made for Egyptian queens/I'll do it in the swimming pool so everybody sees."
GaGa recently spilled that she will reveal the title of her new studio effort in September. Her co-manager, Vincent Herbert, once told That Grape Juice that the new album will be "insane." He gushed, "[It's] just [an] insane, great record. She's on tour right now, but it's just going to be a great record. Look out for the unexpected when it comes to her. We're doing it on the road right now, so it's a little hard, but it's going to be great."
The "Born This Way" hitmaker is still doing her Australian leg of her Born This Way Ball through July 8 before continuing her tour in Europe starting August 14.
