In the latest installment of covers to come from Lady Gaga’s forthcoming release Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary Edition, Kylie Minogue has shared her electric reimagined rendition of “Marry The Night.”
Minogue goes full disco on the classic Born This Way track. “Surprise! My version of Lady Gaga’s Marry The Night is out now,” she shared on social media. “Join me in celebrating the tenth anniversary of Born This Way. Time to dance #LOVERS!”
“Marry The Night” served as the fifth single from Born This Way and was written and produced by Gaga and Fernando Garibay. For the remix, Minogue recruited Biff Stannard and Duck Blackwell as the producers responsible for the track’s disco kick.
Since its 2011 release, the single has been certified platinum by the RIAA and reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, and hit No.1 on the US Dance Club Songs chart.
In a 2011 interview with NME, Gaga explained the origins of “Marry The Night,” saying: “This song is about me going back to New York. I wrote this about the courage it took for me to say ‘I hate Hollywood, I just wanna live in Brooklyn and make music'”.
As Born This Way, Gaga’s sophomore album, turns ten, the singer is reflecting on the career-defining record. “Born This Way, my song and album, were inspired by Carl Bean, a gay black religious activist who preached, sung, and wrote about being ‘Born This Way.’ Notably, his early work was in 1975, 11 years before I was born,” Gaga explained in a speech from West Hollywood.
“Thank you for decades of relentless love, bravery, and a reason to sing. So we can all feel joy, because we deserve joy. Because we deserve the right to inspire tolerance, acceptance, and freedom for all.”
All of the covers from Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary Edition were recorded by LGBTQIA+ artists and advocates, including Minogue, Orville Peck and Big Freedia. With three more covers on the way, reimagined versions of “Highway Unicorn (Road To Love),” “Yoü and I” and “The Edge of Glory” are still to come.
