Olly Alexander is getting the queer party started.
On Tuesday (June 22), the Years & Years soloist and Itâ€™s a Sin star dropped his new magical cover of the iconic Lady Gaga hit â€œThe Edge of Glory.â€ The new version comes three days ahead of the special anniversary release of Born This Way Reimagined: The Tenth Anniversary.
Adding a sparkly electro-pop flair to the originalâ€™s arena-sized grandeur, Alexander brings the opportunity for LGBTQ+ people to dance and celebrate their queerness. And Twitter fans are living for it.
While Born This Way Reimagined will still contain its original 14 songs, the album also has a series of new covers from several featured artists who represent and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. Alexanderâ€™s version is the fourth cover to be released thus far.
Other artists already featured include Big Freedia, Orville Peck, and Kylie Minogue.
Freediaâ€™s hip-hop bounce cover of â€œJudasâ€ was the first of the cover series that dropped on May 28. Peck followed, releasing his country-road version of â€œBorn This Wayâ€ on June 4. Minogue recently dropped her disco-pop cover on â€œMarry the Nightâ€ last week.
The remaining guest covers for â€œHighway Unicorn (Road to Love)â€ and â€œYoÃ¼ and Iâ€ are to be announced.
Born This Way Reimagined: The Tenth Anniversary will be released later this week on Friday, June 25.
