Lady GaGa has unveiled the official video for her new single 'Perfect Illusion'. The clip came yesterday (September 20th 2016), just one month ahead of the release of her next album 'Joanne'. Apparently, it was shot over a period of two days in a desert just outside of Los Angeles.

Directed by Andrea Gelardin and Ruth Hogben, and produced by Keeley Gould, the video opens with Lady Gaga dancing for a crowd in the sun, swinging her microphone over her head like a lasso. It then cuts to the singer driving erratically through the desert, before she ends up rocking out in the club. 

'Perfect Illusion' was released on September 9th and while it only reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, it debuted at number two on the Digital Songs chart with 100,000 downloads. It was co-written and co-produced by Kevin Parker from Tame Impala, Mark Ronson and BloodPop, and was recorded at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, California. 

Gaga performed the song live for the first time at Moth Club in Hackney, London the day after its release, and it was also used in a trailer for 'American Horror Story: Roanoke'; the highly anticipated sixth season of the series in which Lady Gaga is due to make an appearance following her award-winning performance in 'Hotel'.
