Lady Gaga premiered the Joanne (Oct. 21) track "Million Reasons" at her first Dive Bar Tour date in Nashville on Wednesday night (Oct. 5), and a short time later she made the moving ballad available for streaming for Little Monsters who pre-order the album. "You're giving me a million reasons/ To let you go/ You're givin' me a million reasons/ To quit the show," she sings in the country-tinged ballad's first verse.

 

The acoustic track about the search for even just one reason to stay when everything tells you to walk away builds to a climax in the verse, "I bow down to pray/ I try to make the worst seem better/ Lord show me the way/ To cut through all this worn out leather/ I've got a million reasons to walk away/ But baby I just need one good one to stay."

Also, Twitter has created a Gaga Joanne emoji. Just sayin'.

 

Joanne will feature guest spots from Florence + the Machine's Florence Welch and Father John Misty, as well as production work from the likes of Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, Kevin Parker of Tame Impala and Mark Ronson.
