To mark its tenth birthday, Lady Gaga has put out a new version of her iconic 2011 album, Born This Way, titled Born This Way the Tenth Anniversary.
The new version of the record, which was released on June 18, adds six additional reinterpretations of the album’s songs by artists, hand-picked by Gaga, who are “representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community.”
Big Freedia provided a groovy take on “Judas,” while Orville Peck dropped a “country road” version of the record’s hit title track.
“I am so honored and excited to be a part of the iconic legacy of this song and album. Thank you @ladygaga for askin me and Happy Pride y’all !!,” Peck said.
Elsewhere, Kylie Minogue took on “Marry the Night,” Years & Years delivered a rendition of “The Edge of Glory,” while Ben Platt covered “You and I.” “Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)” also received an alternate version, courtesy of The Highwomen, Brittney Spencer and Madeline Edwards.
In addition to the album’s 14 original songs, #TheTenthAnniversary edition will also include a second disc of reimagined versions of #BornThisWay songs by incredible artists who both represent and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. 🌙✝🦄👥📐🌈 pic.twitter.com/iJreSJHZI0
