Lady Gaga Announces ‘You and I’ Producer /// Laurieann Gibson talks about co-directing "Judas"

Lady Gaga has revealed the producer of a track from her forthcoming album Born This Way, due out on May 23rd. The piano power ballad “You and I” was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange, who had worked on records by AC/DC, Def Leppard, Bryan Adams, Billy Ocean and many others. He is also responsible for Shania Twain’s Come On Over, the best-selling album by a female artist ever.

Other confirmed producers for the album include Fernando Garibay (“Born This Way,” “Edge of Glory,” “Marry the Night”), DJ White Shadow (“Born This Way,” “Government Hooker”) and RedOne (“Judas,” “Scheiße,” “Hair”).



THR: You’ll be co-directing the video for “Judas,” is it safe to assume that the clip will have a religious theme?

Gibson: It went through several changes and late-night debates because at one point, there were two completely different views and I was like, 'Listen, I don't want lightning to strike me! I believe in the gospel and I'm not going there.' And it was amazing because to have that conversation about salvation, peace and the search for the truth in a room of non-believers and believers, to me, that was saying God is active in a big way. And the place that it came to is surreal. We don't touch on things that we have no right touching upon, but the inspiration and the soul and idea that out of your oppression, your darkness, your Judas, you can come into the marvelous light. So it's about the inspiration and to never give up… We've created a new Jerusalem.

THR: If the final treatment didn’t sit well with you, would you have walked away from the video?

Gibson: Absolutely. I do believe God inspired and worked on everyone's heart, but yes. I would have been like, “Good bye, I ain't doing it. No way.” But the place it came to is really magical. And she's dancing her face off.
