Lady Gaga's New Album Features a Duet with Florence Welch
Little Monsters were already kind of losing their minds on Friday morning (Sept. 9) when Lady Gaga finally released the first single from her upcoming album, the pulse-pounding "Perfect Illusion." But during an interview with BBC Radio 1 (via the Independent) just hours after the first single from her as-yet-untitled fifth effort dropped, she revealed an even bigger secret.
"There's a feature on the album that I think you will be very excited about," she said, spilling that she's recorded a song with Florence + the Machine's Florence Welch. “Me and Florence Welch did a duet together. I started to work on an idea for a song that I really wanted to do with a girl. You’ll see why when you see what the song is about," she said. “I just thought, ‘Who do I want to sing with?’ She’s really to me if not the best, one of the greatest vocalists in the world. She’s incredible.”
Monsters were freaking out just a bit.

Listen to her collaborator Mark Ronson call in to Grimshaw's show and try to fake Gaga out with a terrible accent.
While you wait, here's "Perfect Illusion" again.
