Stream Lady Gaga’s Latest ‘Joanne’ Track “A-YO”

Lady Gaga‘s latest Joanne preview comes in the form of spunky buzz track “A-YO” and, to my ears at least, it’s the first thing from the set that doesn’t feel overwrought and over-sung. It’s fun! It’s crunchy, brassy, bratty, catchy. It’s definitely a rock song. It’s definitely a pop song. It’s also maybe a bro country song? Imagine the The Tings Tings with a twang and you’ve got it.

But the key is it’s fun, and it’s the type of seamless genre-clash that she mastered in the pre-ARTPOP era.

Joanne drops Friday (October 21). Hear “A-YO” below.
