During a DJ set, Mark Ronson and Kevin Parker played/performed the demo version of Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion”!— Anthony | Lady Gaga News (@antpats2videos) December 1, 2018
Kevin originally had this solo demo titled “Illusion”, that evolved into Gaga’s version, which you can hear a snippet of below pic.twitter.com/hc1FSMNlUh
Notably forgotten Gaga lead single "Perfect Illusion" was presented to Gaga by Kevin Parker as an initial Tame Impala track called "Illusion".
Unsure of the date and location, but a Tame Impala fan account recorded a clip of the demo at a live DJ set. It's very similar to the final released song with different filtered KP vocal effects and the lyrics 'it wasn't love, it must've been an illusion'.
i think i prefer this style over Gaga's dramatic singing tbh
