Berlin-era Gaga?

Lady Gaga's newest song is a dark, remixed Germanic Club Kid anthem produced for the Thierry Mugler menswear show (as one of her principal stylists, Nicola Formichetti recently took up the reigns at the fashion house).  The track is called "scheiße" which translates to 'shit' if you verstehen kein Deutsche, and what's best about it is that (though it's a remix) the sound finally comes close to matching the aesthetic.  It's still dance pop, but it's accessed a little bit of darkness, just a touch of nihlism.  Honestly, this is the direction I'm hoping her next album, Born This Way, will head when it's released May 23rd.
