Today, Lady Gaga released “Stupid Love,” the first single off her highly anticipated sixth studio album.

According to Entertainment Weekly: [The video] directed by frequent Sia collaborator Daniel Askill (“Chandelier”) and shot entirely on an iPhone, the “Stupid Love” music video follows Gaga as the leader of various factions on a planet called Chromatica, where inhabitants are seemingly divided into different groups represented by the colors of the rainbow, with the “Kindness Punks” fighting to keep the planet in order, while the “Spiritual Ones” pray for peace and Gaga unites the warring groups with her (intense) choreography. Sonically, the new song — which lands as the first official preview of her anticipated sixth studio album — harkens back to Gaga’s Born This Way era, as the 33-year-old lets her powerhouse vocals soar over glistening production from longtime collaborators BloodPop (Joanne) and French DJ Tchami (“Applause,” “Do What U Want”). The tune marks a noticeable turning point for the singer after she fronted a predominantly rock-inspired detour from her signature pop sounds across her last studio album, 2016’s Joanne, and the soundtrack to 2018’s blockbuster movie A Star Is Born, in which she appeared opposite Bradley Cooper and later won the Best Original Song Academy Award for penning the film’s soundtrack smash “Shallow.”
