Paul Blair, who is known by his stage name DJ White Shadow, is the mastermind producer behind hits from Lady Gaga’s Born This Way and ARTPOP albums and is currently supporting and opening for Mother Monster on her U.S tour dates, for the blockbuster Joanne World Tour. DJWS recently sent fans into a frenzy on Twitter when he teased a well known unheard and unreleased Gaga track, “Tea”. Now for those of you who haven’t heard of ‘Tea’, it”s a song that was written by Lady Gaga back in 2012 for her fourth studio album ARTPOP, but sadly it never appeared on the final version of the album. LG even teased the lyrics and the song herself on Twitter.
its been oolong since i’ve had a sip and I get this feeling, i need a green detox the truth will be the winner tonight -from TEA on ARTPOP

The song has since achieved cult status within the Little Monster fan base as far as unreleased tracks go, with many anticipating how it sounded and if it would ever surface. DJWS sent fans into overdrive – and brought the song back in the forefront of our minds – when he mentioned the song back in February, revealing in an interview that he still had Tea in his possession and that he would release it someday, in addition to comparing it to Britney Spears’ 2003 smash hit ‘Toxic’.
DJ White Shadow has stayed tight lipped about the song ever since, until now!
On Thursday ‘The Cure’ co-producer sent out a little hint via Twitter that Tea was coming!
Tomorrow: Boston Tea Party. (Intro 😊)

DJWS debuted the intro and instrumental of the song during his opening set at The Joanne World Tour, at Fenway Park in Boston tonight (Sept 1.) Be sure to have a listen in the video below:

Now that we’ve had a little taste of Tea, here’s hoping the full version will be released in it’s entirety one day, as a surprise, for us all to love, appreciate and devour.
