Little monsters rejoice! Lady Gaga has revealed the artwork for “Born This Way,” the first single off her album of the same name, coming May 23. In the black-and-white photo, the pop queen turns her head towards the camera as wind blows her blonde locks away from her face, accented by dramatic eye makeup and solid black lipstick. The upbeat record, produced by Gaga, Fernando Garibay, and DJ White Shadow, premieres this Friday and she will perform it live at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
After hearing her new music, Elton John bestowed praise upon the title track. “The first single is the anthem that’s going to obliterate [Gloria Gaynor’s] ‘I Will Survive,’” he told Rolling Stone. “I can’t think of how huge it’s going to be.”
