Lady Gaga is having quite the week. In addition to confirming her new movie role, the singer has just taken to Instagram to announce our first taste of LG5: a single titled "Perfect Illusion."

Needless to say, the news comes as a welcome announcement. As much as we're enjoying Lady Gaga's recent steps toward world domination—or at least an EGOT—we have to admit that what we're really craving is some new music we can get down to on the dance floor (and the shower, if we're being honest with ourselves). If you're a little monster, we know you are too; just about every Instagram we post about the singer is met with at least one #LG5 comment.

Luckily for all of us, it looks Gaga's fifth studio album is well on its way. Aside from a vague September release date, no other information was included with the announcement of the new single. While we have many questions about the new music (Will it be pop? Jazz? Something else entirely?) our most pressing is: Who shot the album art? Our dream would be a reunion with Hedi Slimane.

Update: it has been confirmed that the new single was produced by Mark Ronson and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker. More details to come.
