Lady Gaga surprises fans with new single after Coachella performance

So, today was a special day for Lady Gaga and her fans as she is now on stage at the Coachella Music Festival in California.

Lady Gaga is giving her fans a chance to be part of her new movie A Star is Born by inviting them to film a scene at Coachella in California. "I've been in the studio and I'd like to debut a brand new song, 'The Cure'". The festival will mark the band's third time as a Coachella headliner, after previously appearing in 2004 and 2012.

Gaga may not have that caliber of anticipation yet, but Jackson believes she is uniquely capable of synthesizing the whole Coachella experience. The song seems to be a flashback to Gaga's earlier hits.

Sensuality oozed throughout Gaga's set. At one point, she was seen getting off the stage and high-fiving people at the front of the pit.

'Have you all found someone you want to sleep with yet?' she teasingly asked the 100,000-strong crowd, majority young and many of them clad only in the bare minimum of clothing after a long day in the sun. The second outfit was for her song "Born This Way" where she was in a black leotard with sequined boots. Many took to social media to share their impressions.

Even going back before Coachella (1999), Goldenvoice has been after her for 25 years. Migos played "Bad and Boujee" and "T-Shirt", while Drake performed "Jumpman" and his More Life tracks "Gyalchester" and "Fake Love". Watch his full set from the Outdoor Stage below.

Frontman Justin Vernon performed in headphones at a soundboard but by the end of the set brought the crowd into a frenzy as he knelt before his sound pedals and clamped aggressively onto his electric guitar's bridge as abstract images flashed on screen.

And if that's too much, take a cue from her monochromatic lavender outfit in the video for "Running Up That Hill". Continuing the line of big name special guests, one of Coachella's most intriguing acts, Hans Zimmer, blew minds and hearts with music from Inception, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, and Gladiator, and then was joined on stage by Pharrell.
