Watch Lady Gaga’s New Music Video for ‘Perfect Illusion’

It's a frenetic, sun-kissed montage

Three weeks ago, Lady Gaga finally released the single “Perfect Illusion” from her long-awaited forthcoming fifth album. On Tuesday night the music video dropped.

Summer officially ends this week, and the new video will have you pining for its return already. It’s a frenetic, sun-kissed montage seemingly set somewhere in the American West: we see Gaga driving through a desert in the late afternoon, interspersed with gorgeous shots of an outdoor concert.

The video already had half a million views by midnight on Tuesday.
