Lady Gaga Announces Diane Warren Collaboration “Till It Happens To You”
Lady Gaga ended 2014 by hitting the studio with acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren, best known for her power ballads. Now, a month later, the resulting collaboration has made its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Their new song, “Till It Happens to You,” appears in Kirby Dick‘s The Hunting Ground, a documentary that exposes the troubling rape culture at college campuses nationwide.
While “Till It Happens to You” hasn’t surfaced online yet, Lady Gaga and Warren did exchange some lyrics on Twitter, to give fans an idea of what to expect — “Till it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels,” and “Till your world burns and crashes, till [you’re] at the end, the end of your rope.” In her review, The Hollywood Reporter‘s Leslie Felperin says that the song “provides an extra jolt of poignancy” in the film.
