After what seems like a long wait, Lady Gaga is finally set to debut some brand-new music! The pop star announced a flurry of news on her Facebook
early Friday morning, including that her new album ARTPOP
will be released on November 11, and that a new single will be upon us on August 19!
" ... ARTPOP explodes onto the physical and virtual universe at once on November 11, our 'BIG BANG!,'" she writes. "On this day HAUS OF GAGA venges with forte to bring the music industry into a new age; an age where art drives pop, and the artist once again is in control of the 'icon.'"
Gaga also announced that there will be an app accompanying the new album.
"Built by TechHAUS, the technological branch of HAUS Of GAGA, the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology with a new interactive worldwide community -- 'the auras.'" Altering the human experience with social media, we bring ARTcuture into POP in a reverse Warholian expedition."
As for what her third album will sound like, Gaga is typically cryptic.
"ARTPOP musically mirrors Gaga's creative process as she passes through the mediums of each artist she collaborates with, scoring a blueprint of her journey," she writes. "The result, a 'rage' of electronic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ARTPOP could mean anything."
On November 10, the night before the album's release, Gaga will host an "evening of artRave" exhibiting Haus of Gaga's projects as well as collaborations with artists Inez & Vinoodh, Robert Wilson, Marina Abramovic, and Jeff Koons.
