New Music: Lady Gaga – ‘Aura’

Lady Gaga busts out the big guns with her explosive new song “Aura.” The electronic track, which is featured in a trailer for Machete Kills, is rumored to be the next single off ARTPOP. Now the pop star debuts the full studio version in a lyric video with scenes from the Robert Rodriguez-directed film, in which she also stars.

“I think ‘Aura’ [is] one of the most interesting and unique electronic songs ever, honestly,” the track’s producer Zedd told MTV News. “It’s so crossing over to, you know, there’s so many guitars and it’s like an oriental vibe. And there’s a hard electronic drop and kind of a minimal drop in the end. I don’t how to describe it, it’s kind of cool.”

Gaga’s album ARTPOP arrives Nov. 11 featuring the hit single “Applause,” plus the tracks “Manicure,” “Swine,” “Sex Dreams,” and “Jewels and Drugs” featuring Too $hort, T.I., and Twista.
