This year is full of great news on a musical level. Perhaps the most exciting of all and for music lovers is the return of concerts and festivals in much of the world, but while all this situation returns to normal, several artists have prepared a couple of surprises to commemorate important anniversaries. As the case of Lady Gaga that this 2021 starts the celebration of a very important album for her.
It was in 2011 when the pop star released her second record material, Born This Way. This album turned out to be very important, as it ended up catapulting her to fame and placed her as one of the most important women in the industry. That is why to honor him as he deserves, he will celebrate his 10th anniversary with a reissue where various artists who support the LGBTQ + community will reinterpret the tracks on the album.

But now, another completely reimagined song has appeared from this very important album in Lady Gaga’s career. Is about “The Edge of Glory”, which this time was in the hands of neither more nor less than Years & Years.
While on Gaga’s original track we hear a Bruce Springsteen-style melody, powered by the keys and saxophone of the late E Street Band musician Clarence Clemons, Olly Alexander’s version relies on shiny synths consistently to present us a song that, if before it was already ideal to break the dance floor, now it will make you want to rock the boat as if there were no tomorrow.
This song and “Marry The Night” featuring Kylie Minogue join “Judas” featuring Big Freedia and Orville Peck’s rendition of the title track. Remember that the reissue of Born This Way by Lady Gaga which will have the participation of a lot of invited artists will reach digital platforms next June 25th.
