Lady Gaga Releases Bruce Springsteen-Inspired Song ‘Hair’ [AUDIO]

May 16, 2011 1:16 pm

With just one week until the release of Lady Gaga‘s highly-anticipated sophomore album, the singer is releasing “Hair,” the fourth song from Born This Way.

The 25-year-old singer told Ryan about the song back in February, saying it’s one of her favorite songs on the album.

“Hair is a really amazing song,” said Gaga of the RedOne-produced song. “It’s a club record, but it’s sort of got this Bruce Springsteen vibe to it. I actually had Clarence Clemons from the E Street Band come in and he played saxophone on the record. It’s really interesting because [we're] putting saxophone on this really huge electronic record.”

Clemons also played saxophone on Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory” which she released last week. Listen to the song below and click here to buy it on iTunes!

In the interview, Gaga also revealed some of the lyrics to the song:

Whenever I dress cool my parents put up a fight
and if I’m a hot shot, mom will cut my hair at night
And in the morning I’m short of my identity
I scream mom and dad, ‘Why can’t be who I want to be?’

I’ve had enough, this is my prayer
That I’ll die living just as free as my hair
