Gaga sings of the pitfalls of a quick romance against a driving dance beat.

"I don't need your eyes to see/ I felt you touching me/ High like amphetamine/ Maybe you're just a dream," she sings. "That's what it means to crush/ Now that I'm waking up/ I still feel the blow/ But at least now I know."

Gaga co-produced "Perfect Illusion" with Mark Ronson, Tate Impala's Kevin Parker and Blood Pop, previously known as Blood Diamonds.

Ronson discussed his work with Gaga in May during an interview with journalist Charlie Rose.

"It's really great to make this very honest, authentic, analog kind of record with her," Ronson said. "She's happiest when she is sitting at a piano barking orders at a drummer like, here are the changes."

Gaga's upcoming album will be her first since 2013's "ARTPOP."
