Lady Gaga is set to make her major film acting debut on Machete Kills, which opens in theatres tomorrow (Friday October 11, 2013). In advance of the movie, we're getting the official lyric video of the newest Lady Gaga song, "Aura" which also features footage from the film.

Upon listening a few times, there isn't really a conventional pop hook. There are lyrical references to Lady Gaga's upcoming album, Artpop.
In a photo shared on Twitter earlier today, the names of Artpop songs were painted on a wall in graffiti style, and "Aura" appears to be a song that will be on the album:
