Lady Gaga has announced she will be releasing a new single in August.
The track, which will be taken from her upcoming third album, will be released on August 19. The album, Artpop will be released later in November.
A smartphone and tablet app will also be available to accompany the album. This will allow fans to download games, extra videos music and chat options.
A statement released on the singers Facebook page on Friday says:
“Built by TechHAUS, the technological branch of HAUS OFGAGA, the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines art, fashion and technology with a new interactive worldwide community – “the auras”. Altering the human experience with social media, we bring ARTculture into POP in a reverse Warholian expedition.
Exploring Gaga’s existence as a cultural interface, the user will share in the ‘adrenaline of fame; as they build and share their own projects, chat with one another and watch in real-time on a virtual globe as ARTPOP explodes onto the physical and virtual universe at once on November 22, our ‘BIG BANG!’. On this day HAUS OF GAGA venges with forte to bring the music industry into a new age: an agee where art drives pop, and the artist is once again in control of the ‘icon’.
In turn 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 iconic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ARTPOP could mean anything. But for her this is a celebration of her obsession. And on November 10 she will host an evening of artRAVE exhibiting HAUS OF GAGA projects”
It is also rumoured that the singer will make a reappearance at the iTunes festival later this summer.
Both Artpop and the app will be available to download from September 1.
