Lady Gaga's most recent release, the R Kelly-featuring 'Do What U Want', is ineligible for the Official UK Singles Chart until the release of her new album 'ARTPOP' on November 11.

Despite being released earlier this week to fans who have pre-ordered the album, the Official Charts Company has stated that the single will only become chart eligible when the singer's album pre-order finishes, as only one song download is allowed to be given away as part of a pre-order incentive. 'Do What U Want' is the second such track. "The track will become eligible to chart once the current chosen promotional period ends and the full album is released on 11 November," writes the Charts Company. Gaga announced the release of the song on Twitter last week, where she also unveiled the single's provocative artwork.

'ARTPOP' is released on November 11 and will include the single 'Applause' as well as appearances by rappers TI, Twista and Too $hort 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 tomorrow (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 $hort, and Twista)
'Manicure'
'Do What U Want' (feat. R Kelly)
'Artpop'
'Swine'
'Donatella'
'Fashion!'
'Mary Jane Holland'
'Dope (Formerly I Wanna Be With You)'
'Gypsy'
'Applause'
