I have to confess, I'd forgotten about Lady Gaga. It's not entirely my fault though - it's been a long time since she last released new music (Artpop came out in 2013), and she seemed to be shifting her focus towards acting, activism, and philantropy.

The recently-unveiled 'Perfect Illusion' comes as a surprise, but unfortunately not a very nice one: although the track's production is flawless (hello there Mark Ronson), and Gaga's voice will never cease to be the powerhouse we've come to know and love, the track is pretty forgettable.

You can stream it below via Apple Music, if you really must.
