Lady Gaga Pays Tribute to Trayvon Martin

“Doesn’t everyone belong in the arms of the sacred/ Why do we pretend we’re wrong has our young courage faded/ Shots were fired down the street by the church where we used to meet/ Angel down, angel down, why do people just stand around.” These are the opening lyrics to Lady Gaga’s new song Angel Down that pays a tribune to Trayvon Martin.

It’s been three years since the mixed reaction to her third album ARTPOP, but the next installment is a complete overhaul for the 30-year-old star, both visually and sonically. She says this song is a response to “the epidemic of young African-Americans being murdered in this country.”

Gaga’s fifth studio collection is titled Joanne and was released worldwide on October 21. The standard edition will include 11 tracks, with a further three on the deluxe. The album was named after her dad’s sister ,who died from lupus aged just 19. It’s also Gaga’s middle name. Read more
