Lady Gaga Lullabies Are Now An Actual Thing

Lady Gaga Lullabies Are Now An Actual Thing

Because you were born this way, baby.

Because you were born this way, baby.

Put your paws up, Little Monsters—emphasis on “little”. The Rockabye Baby! series is transforming the music of none other than Lady Gaga into a sleepytime soundtrack, meaning that there will be actual Gaga lullabies in the universe. Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Lady Gaga will be released on September 21 (one week before another legendary cover album), and includes calming, wordless takes on even the most bombastic Gaga hits. 

The album will include songs that range her entire career, from debut single “Just Dance” to country-influenced smash “Million Reasons” and, of course, “Born This Way”. Even the fantastically loud Joanne lead single “Perfect Illusion” is somehow calm enough to make us fall asleep. I can already imagine the amount of future babies who will be raised on nothing but Gaga lullabies (mine included). You have to start teaching them while they’re young. 

Rockabye Baby! has previously reworked the catalogs of artists like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Björk, and even Black Sabbath into wood-block-and-glockenspiel arrangements, because nothing says nap-time like a death metal band. On the opposite end of the child-appropriateness spectrum, Gaga's next moves are her highly anticipated turn in R-rated A Star Is Born and her upcoming Sin City residency, Enigmakicking off on December 28. 

To give us a taste of what to expect, Rockabye Baby! has released the lullaby version of “Poker Face”, which you’ll likely sing the chorus over rather than fall asleep. Listen and check out the the full track list below.
