Lady Gaga's most recent single was not in fact "born this way." It was born as a classic Gaga radio smash-hit, yet in its nascent months has been transformed into "The Country Road Version" you can hear below. The track was produced by Fernando Garibay, who also produced the original "Born This Way." Gaga is currently working on the video for the alternate rendition.
The new version of the tune is slowed down to a country lilt and saddled with some dirty harmonica, slide guitar, and honeyed harmonies. She also adds a couple new lyrics to suit the southern tinge: "If I wanna make it country, baby, then it's OK, cuz I was born, I was born, I was born this way. From London, Paris, Japan back to USA/ I was born on the road, I was born to be brave." Nashville would be proud...probably.
