In conjunction with Wednesday’s iHeartMedia event in New York, Lady Gaga revealed that her new single “Perfect Illusion” would arrive in September.

While fans only received that update, those at iHeart headquarters got to hear the song. They also heard Lady Gaga’s comments regarding the new release.

“The song is about modern ecstasy,” says Gaga of the single, which she developed with Mark Ronson and Kevin Parker. “We found our sweet, simple, ragey way of saying it.”

Commenting on the “Perfect Illusion,” iHeart says the single “finds a sweet space in Mother Monster’s catalogue alongside some of her best dance floor anthems.” The Media conglomerate adds that Gaga’s eagerly awaited new single “touches the highest of highs and lowest of lows in a relationship gone wrong, thus, the perfect illusion.”

Gaga declares that she gets this “sick adrenaline rush” every time she hears it.
