Headlining at Coachella this weekend, Lady Gaga surprised fans with a brand new single, called "The Cure:" an upbeat, full-on pop production decidedly veering from her country-tinged Joanne phase.
"The Cure" was co-written by Gaga and Paul Blair, also known as DJ White Shadow, who heavily collaborated with Mother Monster on her critically-acclaimed album Born This Way. As Gaga gears up for a Joanne world tour, we're excited and, admittedly, shocked to discover that moving forward, we can expect a shift from the soft country vibes offered on LG's latest album.
Listen to "The Cure," here.
Upon first play, we weren't sold on Gaga's new song, but playing it again while cruising down the freeway, we realized it just might be the anthem we need now. And Coachella attendees certainly seem to agree:

Love it or hate it, you have to admit you didn't see "The Cure" coming, and for someone as conspicuous as Gaga, that's pretty remarkable. Plus, the silky armchair artwork is legendary.
