Lady Gaga has revealed the full tracklist for her upcoming album 'ARTPOP' as well as new song 'Aura' from the album.

Gaga confirmed the running order of her third album on Twitter last night (October 9) by retweeting a group of fans she had commissioned to paint a mural of the song titles on a wall in Los Angeles. Tweeting her 40m followers, Gaga wrote: "Known as the LA Rivington Rebels, they've been sleeping outside of the Record Plant (my studio) for a month! Sleeping bags, booze & all."

The subsequent 15 tweets confirmed song titles including the single 'Applause' as well as songs featuring R. Kelly ('Do What U Want') and rappers T.I. Twista and Too $short ('Jewels N' Drugs'). Other titles on the album include 'Sexxx Dreams', 'Donatella', 'Swine' and 'Fashion!'. Following the reveal of the song titles, a lyric video for 'Aura', the first song on 'ARTPOP' was revealed. The video doubles as a trailer for the Robert Rodriguez film Machete Kills, which Gaga stars in, and can be seen below.

Earlier this week Lady Gaga revealed the Jeffery Koons designed cover art for her forthcoming album 'ARTPOP'. Click here to read what leading art expert Will Gompertz has to say about the artwork, which features a naked sculpture of Gaga straddling a blue ball with her album title written on it.

'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.
