Lady Gaga gave her Little Monsters another preview of her new album, "Born This Way," by releasing the racing advance single "The Edge of Glory" online today (May 9), with another single, "Hair," set for release next Monday (May 16). "The Edge of Glory" digital track was released exclusively to iTunes, while streaming audio of the song was posted on the pop star's VEVO channel.
Like first single "Born This Way," "The Edge of Glory" leans upon sunny electronica that ramps up during its anthemic chorus, and while "Glory" also glorifies risk-taking, it's focused on romance rather than individual inspiration. "I need a man that thinks it's right when it's so wrong tonight, yeah baby, tonight, yeah baby/Right on the limits where we know we both belong tonight," Gaga sings in the opening verse. "Glory" also features a nifty instrumental breakdown showcasing a bluesy saxophone solo that begins at the three-minute mark.
