Lady Gaga announced her Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary CD — a re-release of her Born This Way album — will be out via Interscope on June 18. The new edition of the album features all 14 songs off of the original version, and will come with new packaging. Six reimagined tracks also feature different artists who are "representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community."
To give fans a peek into what they can expect, the first cover was officially dropped on Friday, with New Orleans icon Big Freedia putting her own bounce spin on fan-favorite "Judas." The reimagined version of the song sees Freedia adding in driving trap beats, a full brass band, a choir, and her signature rap stylings to the track, giving it a new life of its own.
"Judas was my favorite song when it came out originally, so I really wanted to cover it. I am beyond excited that it’s the first to drop from this project!" Big Freedia said of the new song in a statement. "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 remaining artists who will contribute covers to the album have yet to be revealed, though Gaga may drop more of the singles leading up to the album's June 18th re-release. In the meantime, stream Big Freedia's "Judas" below.
