EXCLUSIVE! Gaga vs Mellencamp: A Preview From Haviland Stillwell’s Album

Do you remember how we told you that the amazingly popular actress/singer/sensation Haviland Stillwell is releasing a full-length album, HOW I ROLE, on Sept. 12?

That drop date is quickly approaching and to get y’all excited, Haviland has given us a sneak peak. Have a listen to one of the tracks, a Lady Gaga & John Cougar Mellencamp mash up, “Hurts So Good/I Like It Rough,” featuring Andrea McArdle (aka Broadway’s original Annie):

HOW I ROLE is described by Haviland’s Press Release as an “intergalactic Glam Pop frolic through seemingly different musical genres, using universal themes and the velvety chameleon voice of The Haviland (not to be confused with De Havilland) to remind us all of the reality of connectivity.”

Want to find out what that means, exactly? Haviland is celebrating the launch of the album with a very special performance at Joe’s Pub in NYC on Sept. 12. Autostraddle will be there, will you? You should probably buy your tickets now because they’re cheap (only $15) & selling fast! We’re told there’s going to be plenty of pre-partying and after-partying. For updates visit Haviland’s website or follow her on twitter.

If you’re unable to make the show, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of HOW I ROLE online starting Sept. 12.

  1. ooo, is it a purely mashups album or are there originals on there? *<3s mashups*

  2. Aww, I was misled. On my RSS feed the title suggested that there was actually going to be a battle with swords and stuff. *sadpanda*

  3. I love it! The songs compliment each other perfectly and Haviland brings a unique take on the Gaga. I love how the pronouns weren’t changed too :)

    • Gasp, hello other Autostraddle Lou, we only need a few hundred more and then we’ll have an army of us! :-D

  4. the Gaga/Mellencamp mash up would make Adam Anders hella proud! hope to see everyone @ joe’s pub… fab work, hav!

  5. Ack, and this is a prime example of why I hate this last semester of school. If it weren’t for it, I could be doing Cool Things at Cool Places where there are Cool People. like this. ugh, education.

  6. omg, hav, your album is gonna be SO sassy! andrea will always sound like little annie to me, LOL… excited for your rendition of ‘glitter & be gay’ and ‘unusual way.’ hey, that rhymes! <3
