Concluding her three-date Bud Light Dive Bar Tour in New York on Thursday with a raucous six-song set, Lady Gaga has released Joanne, her first album in two years.


The 14-track record includes collaborations with Beck, Florence Welch, Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), and Father John Misty—and the song "Angel Down," which the singer said she wrote about Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen who was fatally shot by George Zimmerman.

"I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn't do anything about it and that the justice system continues to over and over again not seek justice for these families," she said in an interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe, adding that she "absolutely cannot write anything that does not have a voice and a purpose in the universe."
