Gaga debuted the song, 'Princess Die', at one of her UK concerts in Twickenham last year, but it hasn't made the final cut after worried label bosses urged her to ditch it.

But sources say the tune didn't go down well with her record label Interscope who persuaded her to leave it off the album.

A source told The Mirror: “Lady Gaga was passionate about Princess Die and, though she admitted it wasn’t her best work, she still wanted it on the album.
