The time has come, Little Monsters. Lady Gaga has unveiled details, including a release date, for her new album ARTPOP.
The follow-up to 2011’s multi-platinum Born This Way arrives on November 11, she announced on her website. The first single launches on August 19.
“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,” read the note.

She will also launch an app on September 1, the same day the album is available for pre-order. The app combines music, art, fashion, and technology and allows users to “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.”
On November 10, she will host an artRave exhibit for Haus of Gaga’s projects and collaborations with artists including Inez & Vinoodh, Robert Wilson, Jeff Koons, and Marina AbramoviÄ‡, who recently worked with Jay-Z.
