Lady Gaga Teases Snippet of ‘ARTPOP’ Title Track
[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]nother day, another ART to POP from Madame MANiCURE herself, Miss Lady Gaga.
It hasn’t even been 24 hours since Sister Swine gave us all her endlessly replayable ode to consensual lovin’ “Do What U Want (feat. R. Kelly),” and she’s already unveiled another taste of ARTPOP during her Little Monster radio show (#radioARTPOP) tonight — the all-important title track from the upcoming record.
We’ve already heard “ARTPOP” in full at the iTunes Festival, so there’s nothing quite new here, per se — just a sample of the song in pristine studio quality. Of particular note? The slick, gorgeous delivery of the vocals. That Gagaloo coo is quite pleasant to the ear. (No ear condoms needed, Mr. Judas!)
The beat on the studio version of the track smoothes out more delicately across the speakers, reminiscent of the monotonous electro-strut of Selena Gomez‘s “Love You Like A Love Song” and perhaps a touch of Moby with those celestial strings. It’s all very new and fresh and exciting — the very essence of ARTPOP.
Her ARTPOP could mean anything! In this case, it means a continuous stream of solid, forward-thinking pop music.
ARTPOP will be released on November 11. (iTunes)
