The track is one of a series of covers for the tenth-anniversary special edition of Lady Gaga's ‘Born This Way’ album.
Years & Years, the British pop band-turned-solo project of singer Olly Alexander, have shared a cover of Lady Gaga's 2011 hit ‘The Edge Of Glory’.
The track will feature on the tenth-anniversary special edition of Gaga's iconic second album Born This Way, which is set for release on June 25th via Interscope/Polydor.
'Starstruck' singer Olly Alexander wrote to his Instagram followers about the renewed version, saying: "when @ladygaga asked me to remake her iconic track 'Edge Of Glory' for Born This Way Reimagined, I said YES MOTHER and my paws flew into the atmosphere. I’m so happy I got to be a part of this, I hope you enjoy this version. I loved making it so much."
In addition to the original album, the re-issue feature will six new versions of songs reimagined by artists representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community; including Kylie Minogue, Orville Peck, Big Freedia and two more yet-to-be-announced artists.
