Lady Gaga is one of the stars in "Machete Kills" so she is getting some cross promotion with "Aura" in her lyric video. Gaga plays the part of a sexy, gun-toting assassin in the film. The experimental dance track will also be featured on her upcoming album "ARTPOP." A rough demo of it leaked in early August but now the full mastered version of is out.
"Aura" is reminiscent of "Americano," from her "Born This Way" album, but it has a harder electronic edge. She sings about staying hidden behind a veil. "Do you want to see me naked, lover? Do you want to peak underneath the covers?" she asks. The Zedd-produced "Aura" is certainly an adventurous song, both lyrically and stylistically.
Gaga recently released her "ARTPOP" album cover, which shows her giving birth to a crystal ball. She is currently burning up Billboard's Hot 100 with her latest single "Applause." The "ARTPOP" album will be released on November 11. "Machete Kills" hits theaters on October 11.
