At least three unreleased versions of Lady Gaga songs have surfaced on streaming services, listed under her real name, Stefani Germanotta, with no mention of her stage name.
The three songs under that heading are purported different mixes or versions of two previously released songs, “Perfect Illusion” and “Fashion,” as well as an unreleased 2007 song called “Retro Physical” that Gagapedia states is a collaboration with producer Noize Trip that has been making the rounds online for many years; that song is very much in the vein of her 2008 debut album, “The Fame.”
The other two sound like early versions of the officially released songs. “Fashion” is listed as a demo, though it plays as a slightly sped-up version of the Gaga song included on 2009’s “Confessions of a Shopaholic” soundtrack. Some have speculated that the “Perfect Illusion” demo was made with AI, and initially released as a fan prank when the track came out in 2016. Regardless, the timing is certainly notable as “Perfect Illusion,” which had been absent from streaming services, was added back a few days ago.
