Lady Gaga has announced a special 10th anniversary edition of Born This Way.
The seminal 2011 album has turned a decade old and the pop superstar has announced the upcoming release will include six new renditions of tracks from the record. The first to be released is Big Freedia’s take on Judas, which is out now, and the full collection will arrive on June 18. Fans can also expect covers of Highway Unicorn, You & I, Marry the Night, The Edge of Glory and the album’s title track.
In a statement, Big Freedia said ‘Judas was my favorite song when it came out originally, so I really wanted to cover it .’To me, Judas is a love song about when someone does you dirty. I’ve sure had my experience with that. Who can’t relate?’
The Born This Way anniversary LP news comes days after Gaga was awarded West Hollywood’s Key to the City on Born This Way Day this week. The 35yearold singer’s chart-topping record was honored for its cultural impact. West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey P. Horvath presented the Grammy-winner with the key to the city and declared May 23 to be Born This Way Day.
