Lady Gaga debuts song at Coachella

INDIO, CALIFORNIA -- Lady Gaga debuted an R&B-tinged love song Saturday as she headlined the Coachella festival, where the pop diva cast herself as sensual rather than sensational.


The first woman in a decade to top the lineup at the premier music event, Lady Gaga unleashed an action-packed spectacle of acrobatic choreography that culminated in confetti, fireballs and fireworks on her dance anthem “Bad Romance.” Gaga seized upon the spotlight to introduce a new song, “The Cure,” that is built off an unadorned R&B rhythm before rising into a pop chorus with the lines, “If I can’t find the cure, I’ll fix you with my love.”

She released the song commercially as she left Coachella in the California desert, marking her first new music since her latest album Joanne came out in October. Coachella offered a preview of the global tour the pop superstar will launch in August for Joanne, an album that brought a more classic pop and even country sound to the 31-year-old artist long associated with synthpop. -- AFP
