“Sine from Above” is the fourteenth track from Lady Gaga’s 2020 album, “CHROMATICA”. “Sine from Above” marks Lady Gaga and Elton John’s second collaboration since their duet “Hello, Hello” which appeared in the 2011 animated film “Gnomeo & Juliet”.
“Sine from Above” is an EDM and electronica track discussing the musician’s relationship with music and its healing power. In an interview with Apple Music, Gaga explained the wordplay in the title: “S-I-N-E, because it’s a sound wave. That sound, sine, from above is what healed me to be able to dance my way out of this album… That was later in the recording process that I actually was like, ‘And now let me pay tribute to the very thing that has revived me, and that is music.” In a late interview with Rolling Stone magazine, producer Axwell spoke about how the song came to exist: “I had this old song we worked on, like, seven years ago with Elton John. We tried working on it and we couldn’t really get it where we wanted it. It was also kind of hard to get ahold of Elton John. I had this on my computer and was like, ‘Wait a minute. Lady Gaga and Elton John are buddies.’”
There is currently no music video for the track, however the audio upload on Lady Gaga’s YouTube channel in May 2020 has 4.7 million views and almost 150 thousand likes.
