Listen: Lady Gaga Drops ‘Applause’ A Week Before Intended Release Date

20 Nov

Thanks ruining everything pushing “Applause” ahead of schedule, hackers.

Following the leak of a snippet of her ARTPOP single, Lady Gaga has decided to officially release the track one week ahead of its initial premiere date.

On Monday, the Mother Monster took to her Twitter to announce the news, writing:

DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS…WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY…MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD

– Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013

POP MUSIC EMERGENCY #0DAYSTillAPPLAUSE MY NEW SINGLE COMES OUT TODAY. 911 SPREAD THIS MESSAGE

– Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013

Sure enough, the song hit the airwaves soon after the announcement. Gaga, 27, also released a new promotional photo – below – to “accompany this emergency.”

Given that another new Gaga track – currently debated as either titled “Burqa” or “Aura” – has also been leaked online, maybe we’ll be hearing the rest of ARTPOP a lot sooner than expected. For now, the record is slated to be released November 11.

Take a listen to its first single, below. Lyrics for “Applause” are now available on Directlyrics.
