Lady Gaga Premieres New Song 'The Edge of Glory'

Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic(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.´╗┐

Lady Gaga to Make Runway Debut, Preview New Song at Fashion Show

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(PARIS) -- In January, Lady Gaga served as musical director for a Thierry Mugler men's fashion show in Paris, and debuted a remix of one of her new songs.  On Wednesday, she'll go one step further -- she'll be doing all that again, for yet another Mugler show, but this time, she's also going to participate in the show as a model.

Gaga tweeted on Tuesday, "I have a monster fashion announcement, are your paws up?...I'm making my debut as a runway model, walking in the Mugler Paris Fashion Show 3/2.  I directed the show music [also]."  Though many had speculated that Gaga would be previewing her second single, Judas, during this show, instead she's chosen Government Hooker, yet another new track on her upcoming CD Born This Way.

In January, Gaga debuted the song Scheiße [SCHEISS-uh] at the Mugler men's show, and then unveiled a video for it that starred Rick Genest, aka "Zombie Boy," the guy who had his entire face and body tattooed to make himself look like a zombie skeleton. Genest also appears in Gaga's new video for Born This Way, with Gaga wearing makeup to match his tattoos.

Referencing her runway debut, Gaga said on Twitter, "I'm so excited I might give birth to a machine gun."  That's exactly what she does in the video for Born This Way, of course.
