Lady Gaga is ramping up the art pop machine again. The singer surprised her Little Monsters on Wednesday morning (Aug. 17) by posting a series of Instagram teases that created a mosaic spelling out the name of her upcoming single, "Perfect Illusion." The singer said the song will be released in September and a source close to Gaga confirmed to Billboard that the track was produced by Mark Ronson, BloodPop, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker and Gaga; no other information was available at press time about a specific release date or accompanying album.
