Lady Gaga returned to the music scene at the back-end of last week with her new single 'Perfect Illusion', which she worked on with Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, alongside Mark Ronson and BloodPop.

Speaking on Radio 1 to Nick Grimshaw, she spoke a little about the single and how it came together.

Gaga explained: "Kevin Parker flew over from Australia and he came up with this idea that the beginning of the song was called 'Illusion'.

"We stripped everything away. I sat at the piano, Kevin was on the guitar and Mark was at the bass and we just played through it and I worked on a typewriter and we would bounce new lyrics back and forth.

"What was important to me was it wasn't just a song about any illusion but one we can all relate to. That's how we came up with the title 'Perfect'. But I have to hand it to Kevin, he is a real musical genius."

She also confirmed that she had worked on a collaboration with Florence Welch, with the duet set to appear on her upcoming fourth studio album.

"I started to work on an idea for a song that I really wanted to do with a girl and you'll see why when you hear the music and what the song is about," she said.

"She's really to me, if not the best, but one of the greatest vocalists in the world. She's incredible."

Now in its final stages, Gaga wouldn't give a date for the release of her new record, but did promise it would be out before the end of the year.
