Lady Gaga’s second ‘ARTPOP’ single is ‘Aura,’ dropping October 8

Following the success of her first ARTPOP single “Applause,” Lady Gaga’s next single off her forthcoming album will be “Aura.”

“Aura” will drop on October 8 with a lyric video on Vevo and is being used to promote Gaga’s first acting role in Machete Kills, which hits theaters on Friday, October 11.

Produced by rising EDM artist Zedd, “Aura” by Lady Gaga is used in a new television spot for Machete Kills. Watch below:

The version of “Aura” we hear in the trailer is identical to the leaked song known as “Burqa,” which found its way onto the internet in August. Gaga herself confirmed the leak was authentic when she performed it last month at the iTunes Festival. The singer had opened with the song during her ARTPOP-packed concert, subtly suggesting it could be the next single.

You can listen to “Aura” for free below:

ARTPOP will be released in full on November 11 and includes other new songs like “MANiCURE,” “Swine,” “ARTPOP,” “Sex Dreams,” “I Wanna Be With You,” and “Jewels and Drugs” (all performed at the aforementioned concert).

Machete Kills co-stars Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofía Vergara, Antonio Banderas, and Charlie Sheen. See a trailer for the film in our previous story.

We’ll bring you the official release for “Aura” as soon as it hits the internet next week.
