Cult country artist Orville Peck has released his cover of Lady Gaga’s 2011 hit, “Born This Way.” The track was recorded for Gaga’s upcoming reimagined version of Born This Way on the 10th anniversary of her second album.
Officially titled “Born This Way (The Country Road Version)”, the cover features Peck giving it his own twist while remaining largely faithful to the original lyrics. However, he adds an extra touch to the blackout by singing: “If I wanna do country, baby it’s okay / I was born, I was born, I was born this way / From London, Paris, Japan, back to USA / I was born on the road, I was born to be brave.
Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary will be released on June 18. Previously, we’ve heard the cover of Big Freedia’s “Judas”. Stream “Born This Way (The Country Road Version)” below.
Speaking of the road, Peck also announced his 11 date “Summertime Tour”. This is the first time he has performed in front of live crowds since COVID-19 shut down the world last year.
The trip to the United States opens with Peck’s appearance at the Under the Big Sky Festival in Whitefish, MT, before stopping in Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Madison, Wisconsin. He will also perform two dates in Davenport, Iowa, and make other appearances at the Lollapalooza and Hinterland Music Festival.
