Today, Lady Gaga released her special edition Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary album via Interscope Records that features the 14 original songs from the Born This Way album from 2011 in new packaging, along with six reimagined versions of songs from the album created by artists representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community.
In celebration of the launch, the final two surprise covers are revealed to be The Highwomen (ft. Brittney Spencer & Madeline Edwards) with their reimagined version of “Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)” and Ben Platt with his reimagined version of “Yoü and I,” accompanied by a video that he has shared in honor of covering the classic.
The Tenth Anniversary celebrations began with Lady Gaga marking the 10-year anniversary of the Born This Way album and its legacy in West Hollywood, where she received keys to the city and a proclamation naming May 23rd as “Born This Way Day”. Haus of Gaga will celebrate the album release with Paper Magazine and Club Quarantine this Saturday June 26th at 6PM PST/9PM EST. The very special night benefitting the Born This Way Foundation will feature DJ Sets and a special musical performance by Big Freedia. All details can be found HERE.
In addition, the Born This Way Foundation is working closely with New York and Youth Pride, sending goods and monetary donations along with notes of kindness to LGBTQIA+ centers across the United States to assist in their Pride celebrations. Lady Gaga and Versace have collaborated for a Pride collection in celebration of 10 years of Born This Way where a portion of sales will be donated to the Born This Way Foundation in continuation of the brand’s allyship with the LGBTQ+ community. Lady Gaga and Versace have also partnered together with Omaze to support the Born This Way Foundation to give a fan the chance to win the exact replica of the limited-edition Atelier Versace Leather jacket Lady Gaga wore on her legendary 2012 Born This Way Ball world tour.
