Lady Gaga performed a new song from Born This Way called Americano at a concert in Mexico last night.
She delivered a stripped back rendition of the Latin flavoured jam but as usual the diva tackles some big issues in the lyrics.
Mother monster described the song to Gaga Daily as “a big mariachi techno-house record, where I am singing about immigration law and gay marriage and all sorts of things that have to do with disenfranchised communities in America.”
“It sounds like a pop record, but when I sing it, I see Edith Piaf in a spotlight with an old microphone.”
The techno-house component is missing from the song’s live debut but it’s good to hear that Gaga is continuing to fight for gay rights.
Chances are you’ll get to hear the song live in Australia by the end of the year.
According to her manager, Lady Gaga is planning to follow P!nk’s tour and spend a couple of months in Australia.
Troy Carter told the Music Network: “We were over there when P!nk was playing and it was a great lesson for us to learn.”
“When you invest in a country… a country will invest in you,” he continued.
“It wasn’t about P!nk going over there and piling everyone into a few stadiums for a few nights – she went over there and lived there and became part of the culture.”
Pop’s first lady drops her highly anticipated third album on May 23.
She is due to visit Australia in July to promote the album before returning for a tour at the end of the year.
