Lady Gaga has unveiled her new single, "Perfect Illusion." The single hails from her as-yet untitled fourth studio album.

Gaga co-produced the song alongside Mark Ronson, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker and Bloodpop (formerly known as Blood Diamonds).

The singer addresses the pitfalls of mistaking the rush of a crush for something deeper on the driving dance-rock tune. "It wasn't love/ It wasn't love/ It was a perfect illusion," she sings. "Mistaken love/ It wasn't love/ It was a perfect illusion."

In May, Ronson told Charlie Rose in an interview that Gaga was taking a more "analog" approach on her new album. "She's never played guitar in public before…but guitar is something she's learning for this record," he teased, adding, "That side of her, I don't think a lot of the world has seen. It's really great to make this very honest, authentic, kind of analog record with her."

Gaga collaborative duet album with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek, was released in 2014. Her as-yet untitled follow-up to 2013's Artpop is expected next month.
