Lady Gaga to Drop ‘A Very Gaga Holiday’ EP
Lady Gaga‘s ‘A Very Gaga Thanksgiving,’ which she directed herself, will air this Thursday (Nov. 24) at 9:30 PM EST. Don’t worry, your pals at PopCrush will be covering it in case you miss it, so watch this space for Gaga’s Turkey Day madness.
Once the special airs, it will live on, courtesy of ‘A Very Gaga Holiday.’
That’s a four-song EP that will be released on Saturday, Nov. 26 in the U.K., according to Idolator. Since the Europeans don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, Gaga has found a way to include them in her holiday fun.
Thanksgiving Thursday will be followed by Black Friday which will be followed by Gaga Saturday, it seems. The ‘A Very Gaga Holiday’ EP is now on sale in the States. Fans can get all of the songs by visiting the iTunes store.
The EP’s version of ‘You & I’ is torchy and given the same jazzy makeover that first reared its head in the VMA promos. It’s an incredibly intimate version, where Gaga swaps out the “Nebraska” in the lyrics to “America.”
She dedicates ‘The Edge of Glory’ to her grandparents, in a sweet and special moment, while she reveals that she used to sing ‘Orange Colored Sky’ at the Oak Room with her buddies. She gives ‘White Christmas’ that typical Gaga flair, but she allows herself to sound classic and throwback-y.
The EP (and apparently the Thanksgiving special) are quite jazzy and offer an indication of where Gaga could go years down the road.
