She’s back!

Lady Gaga has collaborated extensively with Tony Bennett and written an Academy Award-nominated song in recent years, but she finally released her first follow-up to 2013’s Artpop—and it was worth the wait.

First announced last month, “Perfect Illusion” debuted online Thursday night—first on the radio! With a power team of Mark Ronson, Josh Homme, producer BloodPop, and Tame Impala behind it, it’s a catchy tune that’s sure to get you dancing.

It’s raw and it has hints of “Bad Romance” sprinkled throughout, and once you get to the chorus you’re already hooked. Gaga’s back, everybody.
