Singer hypes up first single release from new LP
The singer posted the photo, which you can see above, accompanied by a message hyping the release of the LP’s first single. She wrote: “1ST SINGLE FROM ARTPOP COMES AUG.19 #24DAYS.”
It is thought that the lead single from Gaga’s new album will be titled ‘Applause’, after her makeup artist, Tara Savelo, posted a photo of the pop star on her Little Monsters social networking site working on what appeared to be the track’s artwork.
Gaga also posted an image on Little Monsters – which is a snapshot of a page from a notebook which appears to be lyrics. “Documented this album/app ‘ARTPOP’ project in a series of notes and books, with visual ideas and sketches throughout,” the caption reads. “I take this book everywhere.” The words in the notebook, which feature on a page containing stick-people and bizarre looking figures, read: “If only fame had an IV / Baby could I bear / Being away from you / I found the vein, put it in here.”
Earlier this month (July 12), Gaga revealed that ‘ARTPOP’ will be released as part of an app on November 11. According to the statement, “the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion and technology with a new interactive world-wide community”.
It continued: “The album ‘ARTPOP’ musically mirrors Gaga’s creative process as she passes through the mediums of each artist she collaborates with, scoring a blueprint of her journey. The result, a “rage” of electronic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ‘ARTPOP’ could mean anything. But for her, this is a celebration of obsession.”
