Lady Gaga has revealed the cover art for her forthcoming album 'ARTPOP'.

The album cover appeared on Clear Channel billboards worldwide at 6pm GMT today (October 7) and the unveiling was streamed live on the singer's official website. Gaga then posted the artwork on Twitter.


The album cover was created by American artist Jeff Koons, who is referenced in Gaga's recent single 'Applause', and features a brand new nude sculpture of the singer. Gaga tweeted: "There is also a surprise! The center image of me is a new Jeff Koons sculpture to be exhibited nov.10 at the artRAVE ARTPOP's release party!"

'ARTPOP' is set for release on November 11 but Gaga will hold an invite-only album playback on October 24 at Berlin club Berghain, famous for its hedonistic parties and strict door policy. Fans wishing to attend the event must submit "a question that you always wanted to ask Lady Gaga" to hosts AMPYA who will hand out 50 pairs of VIP tickets to those they deem the most entertaining. A further 10 grand prize winners will receive a pair of VIP tickets, gaining them access to the playback and a private meet-and-greet with Gaga herself.

Lady Gaga unveiled seven new songs from 'ARTPOP' at her London comeback gig on September 1. The singer opened this year's iTunes Festival with a typically theatrical performance which featured some kind of costume or wig change for every song and several lengthy explanations about the inspiration for her new material.
