LISTEN: Lady Gaga Releases Country Version of "Born This Way"

The unfailingly shocking singer surprises us once again, releasing a twangy acoustic take on her latest chart-topping single

Lady Gaga might be a pop star, but that doesn’t mean Mother Monster can’t get a little bit country! In the wee hours of Friday morning, Gaga posted a link to a country version of her new hit single "Born This Way" on her official Twitter page.

The original song has drawn multiple comparisons to Madonna's 1989 hit "Express Yourself." Gaga's country version of the single has more of an acoustic sound, slowed down with harmonica played throughout. Mama Monster also added a lyric that says: "If I wanna make it contry, baby, it's OK! 'Cause I was born, I was born, I was born this way!" Listen for yourself below!

 

We're betting Gaga's new album, which she described in a recent Google interview as "avant-garde, techno rock," is a little bit country, a little bit pop, but mostly indescribable by a single genre!

The record, also titled Born This Way, drops in May.
