Lady Gaga Readies New Single for "SNL," "The Fame" Re-Release

September 29, 2009 4:32 PM ET

After witnessing Lady Gaga's violently dramatic performance at MTV's Video Music Awards earlier this month (blood! hangings!), when word broke the former Rolling Stone cover star would rock Saturday Night Live this coming weekend, fans started to prep for something suitably epic. Gaga says she'll deliver — with a brand-new track. The singer told Las Vegas and San Diego radio stations KLUC and 94.1 she'll perform the as-yet-unspecified new song along with "Paparazzi," according to MTV News.

The new track could be destined for an expanded re-release of her smash debut, which Gaga said is called The Fame: Monster and is due November 24th (the star's rep confirmed a re-release will be released that day). "I wrote almost a full album's worth of material and right now I'm kind of spending my time sifting through it all and doctoring it and making it perfect and deciding what I want everyone to hear," she reportedly said.

Look back at Lady Gaga's wildest outfits.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
