Lady Gaga just revealed a new music video for a piano version of the song Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?) which is featured on the singer’s eponymous fifth studio album. The song, as well as the album, was influenced by her aunt Joanne, who died at the age of 19 from the auto-immune disease Lupus. “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?) was written by Gaga and English musician Mark Ronson. You can check out the track below.

“My connection to her has been strong my whole life. I always wondered what it was — the mystery of Joanne — this person that I never got to meet that was an absolute tornado of both love and tragedy,” said Gaga to E! News in 2016. “She was a powerful, beautiful force in my family’s life and then it’s like a beautiful light that just goes out, so I’ve always used the fact that she didn’t get to live the rest of her life as a sense of strength and power within me that I have to go out and live the rest for her.”

Lady Gaga released Joanne in October 2016, gaining positive reviews from the critics. It debuted at number one on US Billboard 200, becoming singer’s fourth album to reach number one in the United State. The album also received international recognition, topping the charts in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and reaching top 10 in more than 15 countries.
The 31-year-old singer has received two Grammy nominations for the work on the album, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance for the song ‘Million Reasons’. She is also set to perform at the ceremony.
