Lady Gaga‘s ‘Judas’ has leaked to the web, just a few days shy of its official release as a single.

In this two-minute clip, we can already tell that Gaga has done it again, while still riding the wave of ‘Born This Way.’ ‘Judas’ is repetitive, high-speed, and catchy, but maintains a deeper meaning — like in this line:

“I want to love you but something keeps me from you / Jesus is my virtue, Judas the demon I cling to”

Gaga warned us a few weeks ago in a video montage that the song would be heavy. “If they were not who you were taught that they would be, would you still believe?” the ‘Paparazzi’ singer shared in a written message, adding, “Let the cultural baptism begin.”

The full version of ‘Judas’ drops on April 19. As for the music video, creative director Laurieann Gibson dished that Gaga has danced her way into something big (and controversial). “We don’t touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration and the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light,” Gibson says. “So it’s about the inspiration and to never give up … We’ve created a new Jerusalem.”
