Lady Gaga has shared the video for recent single "Million Reasons." Taken from her fifth studio album Joanne, it sees the singer pick up where lead single "Perfect Illusion" left off, laid prostrate in the desert surrounded by approaching SUVs. A self-proclaimed "story and look into my life," the release comes on the back of a powerful open letter by the singer, in which she spoke out about the "daily effort" of suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Urging others to "overcome their shame" in regards to mental illness, it's hard not to view this latest as video as a metaphor for her own efforts. The video depicts the eventual solace she finds in friends. Watch it below.
