Just as Lady Gaga fans were duking out the next potential single off her newest album Joanne, Mother Monster hit the stage for the first weekend of Coachella on Saturday and threw a curveball debuting a brand new single.

Always one for the spectacle, Gaga threw fans into a frenzy as she hung up her pink cowboy hat to deliver a more pop-driven sound for “The Cure.” Compared to the classic country rock inspired tunes off Joanne, “The Cure” drives Gaga back to her 2009 The Fame era R&B pop sound we came to know and love.

Listen to “The Cure” below.
