Paws up, pequeños monstruos! Lady Gaga decided to finally unveil the Spanish-leaning jam “Americano” — a track from her forthcoming LP Born This Way — while performing last night at the Estadio Tres de Marzo in Guadalajara, Mexico. Watch Gaga’s stripped-down rendition of the brand new song below.
Fan site Gaga Daily quotes MTV O Award winner Gaga describing the song as “a big mariachi techno-house record, where I am singing about immigration law and gay marriage and all sorts of things that have to do with disenfranchised communities in America. It sounds like a pop record, but when I sing it, I see Edith Piaf in a spotlight with an old microphone.”
That woman does love the drama. Guess we’ll have to wait and hear the song in its “techno-house” version to get a good feel for it. (Not that we’re ungrateful for this shoddy fan vid, mind you.)
What do you think of “Americano”? Does it have you more excited for the May 23 release of Born This Way?
