Lady Gaga is out with the music video to her new single ‘The Edge Of Glory’. The song is the third single from the New York City pop singer’s latest album ‘Born This Way’, out now on Interscope Records. Lady Gaga and the Haus of Gaga co-directed the video, which was shot last month.
“Sorry to be a downer. But my grandpa died about five months ago, and my dad and I were going to say goodbye to him at the hospital, and I got out a big thing of agave tequila and my dad sat next to me at the piano and we started to doing shots back and forth, and I wrote ‘Edge of Glory’ on the piano and my dad and I cried,” Gaga said about the 14th track on ‘Born This Way’. “The song’s about your last moment on Earth, the moment of truth, the edge of glory is that moment right before you leave the Earth. So that song can be played on the piano, but it’s actually set to this giant, huge, techno rock, Springsteen-esque dance beat. I actually had Clarence Clemons from the E Street Band come in and play saxophone on it. It’s fu**ing beautiful.”
