Lady Gaga's new track 'Do What U Want' now has cover art, which shows the singer posing in a floral thong.

Gaga used Twitter to unveil the provocative artwork and announce that the track, which features R Kelly, will be available to download from Monday (October 21).


On Thursday (October 17), the US pop star shared a brief snippet of 'Do What U Want' via an advert for Beats and Best Buy. It follows on from the 12 seconds of another new track, 'GUY (Girl Under You)', posted on her official YouTube channel earlier this week. The first taste of 'GUY' comes off the back of Gaga confirming that the next single proper from her forthcoming album 'ARTPOP' will be 'Venus'.

'ARTPOP' is released on November 11 and will include the single 'Applause' as well as appearances by rappers TI, Twista and Too $short on a track called 'Jewels N' Drugs'. Other song titles on the album include 'Sexxx Dreams', 'Donatella', 'Swine' and 'Fashion!'. Gaga will hold an invite-only album playback on October 24 at Berlin club Berghain, famous for its hedonistic parties and strict door policy.

The 'ARTPOP' tracklisting is as follows:

'Aura'
'Venus'
'GUY (Girl Under You)'
'Sexxx Dreams'
'Jewels N’ Drugs' (feat. TI, Too Short, and Twista)
