Yesterday, a new track purportedly by Lady GaGa made the rounds, and oh man was the pantsless pop star peeved. “I wrote ‘second time around’ recently for a current recording artist,” she Tweeted. “I don’t know why people insist on leaking my work.” It’s pretty obvious once you hear “Second Time Around” that it wasn’t going to be a solo track for GaGa, at least in its current form; it’s a wrenching, piano-heavy song that has an aggressively generic quality about it, and overall it seems more appropriate for a re-re-release of the Pussycat Dolls’ Doll Domination than anything branded with the GaGa mark. Hear for yourself after the jump.
Kind of bland, no? Oh well, at least the title made me realize that GaGa would be well-matched to cover Shalamar’s 1979 disco track of the same name.
