The pop superstar's new song is a fitting accompaniment for the action-packed new trailer of the movie.
After gifting her Little Monsters with her "ARTPOP" lead track "Applause", Lady GaGa is gearing up for the release of follow-up single "Aura". Following the demo version and live version of the song, its official audio or more accurately, around a minute of it, debuted in the latest trailer of the upcoming Robert Rodriguez-directed flick "Machete Kills" which stars the flamboyant artist as glamorous baddie La Chameleon.
The latest trailer for the October 11-due movie that premiered on Friday, October 4, shows GaGa in her yellow gold wig and fur coat. The action-packed scenes feature Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Carlos Estevez (a.k.a. Charlie Sheen), Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Mel Gibson.
In "Aura", Mother Monster asks, "Do you want to see the girl that lives behind the aura?...Do you wanna peek underneath the cover?" as footage from the film plays out. A special "Machete Kills"-themed lyric video featuring the complete song, a dance track full of beats and synths, is set to premiere next week, on Tuesday, October 8.
GaGa performed "Aura" during her iTunes festival gig last month where she premiered songs from her forthcoming album "ARTPOP" such as "Swine" and "Sex Dreams". The much awaited LP arrives on November 11.
