From MTV:

The ARTPOP revolution finally has a start date. After more than a year of teasing her third full-length studio album, Lady Gaga announced on Thursday that her latest musical menagerie will be released on November 11.

In a florid Facebook post full of fantastical, arty language, Gaga also promised an as-yet-unnamed single on August 19 and an accompanying app that she said will bring, “ARTculture into Pop in a reverse Warholian expedition.”

The post explained that the app was built by TechHaus, a technology-focused offshoot of her Haus of Gaga creative team. “The app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, 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.”

The album (and app) will be available for pre-order on September 1. While details about the music have been few and far between, Gaga opened a small window into what fans can expect in the post. “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,” it reads, without mentioning anyone by name.
