As the playback takes place on Thursday, October 24 it will not clash with regular club programming in Berghain, which only happens only on weekends.
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. The album will be released on November 11.
