(NEW YORK) -- As promised, Lady Gaga premiered a brand new song, "The Edge of Glory," on Monday afternoon.
The anthemic song features a sax solo by Clarence Clemons of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. Gaga has said that the track was inspired by the death of her grandfather, and that it's about "your last moment on Earth, the moment of truth, the moment before you leave Earth."
Some have speculated that Gaga rushed the song out because "Judas" has underperformed on the chart, but "The Edge of Glory" isn't meant to be an official single, just a teaser for the new album, Born This Way.
Another new single, "Hair," will be released at 1 p.m. PT on Monday, May 16.
