Lady Gaga Will Drop ‘Hair’ One Week Before the ‘Born This Way’ Album Release

Just a day after Lady Gaga released ‘The Edge of Glory‘ comes word that one more Gaga track, ‘Hair,’ will be available for download before the ‘Born This Way’ album hits stores May 23.

‘Hair’ will hit online retailers next week. We haven’t heard the track yet, but MTV reports that, like ‘The Edge of Glory,’ it has an ’80s vibe with a guest appearance from saxophone player Clarence Clemons.

In February, Gaga told Ryan Seacrest that ‘Hair’ is one of her favorite songs on the album. She compared its anthemic rock chorus to KISS and Iron Maiden and also revealed some of the lyrics, including, “I’ve had enough / This is my prayer, that I’ll die living just as free as my hair.”

‘Hair’ will mark the fourth song from ‘Born This Way’ released in advance of the album, along with the title track, ‘Judas‘ and ‘The Edge of Glory.’ Fortunately, little monsters who purchase all four on iTunes will be able to buy the rest of the album at a discounted price when it comes out, via the Complete My Album feature.

Gaga’s strategy of releasing tracks for purchase is a bit different than that of Britney Spears, who leaked song snippets and in some cases full tracks to build anticipation for the release of ‘Femme Fatale.’ That record still debuted at No. 1, and there’s little doubt ‘Born This Way’ will do the same.
