Mother Monster is back!

Lady Gaga released her long-awaited single “Perfect Illusion” and the wait was totally worth it.

The actress/singer reteamed with producer Marc Ronson for a sound that fuses pop, punk and rock. That key change!

Gaga teased some of the lyrics on Twitter Wednesday including: “I don’t need eyes to see / I felt you touchin’ me / High like amphetamine / Maybe you’re just a dream.” And get ready to have this chorus line stuck in your head: “It wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion.”

Back in August, the six-time Grammy winner described her new song as “modern ecstasy” when she made an appearance at iHeartRadio Music Summit in New York City. “We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it… I get this sick adrenaline rush every time I hear it,” she said.

“Perfect Illusion” is Gaga’s first solo release in almost three years, and anticipation for an album is high.
