Madame Gagaloo is hard at work putting the finishing touches on her upcoming iTunes Festival showcase on September 1, where she’ll be debuting a bunch of new ARTPOP tracks in London — including “Swine,” “MANiCURE”…and now, this.
“Sex Dreams” is easily my favorite of the new ARTPOP tracks so far: It’s all sorts of throwback ’80’s-R&B ferociousness, blending dirty-minded temptation with a seriously fierce strut a la Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul — and a bit of Divinyls‘ “I Touch Myself.” “When I lay in bed I touch myself and I think of you,” Gaga purrs. A slutty sister for “Heavy Metal Lover”? Oh yes, I’ll take it.
The footage is all very on point: The big Barbarella hair, tight choreography, glittery space fashion, crashing drums, sultry vocals, et al. Gaga’s clearly hopping on that disco stick again — and I’m definitely on board for the ride.
And here are a smattering of “Sex Dreams” lyrics, courtesy of Gaga’s increasingly caps lock-heavy tweets. Ladies, keep your man close — Gaga’s thirsting to give him a Reverse Warholian Experience.
HEARD YOUR BOYFRIEND WAS AWAY THIS WEEKEND
