ARTPOP Announcement

"ARTPOP" was announced at the Inez and Vinoodh Gagosian Gallery dinner. The album is set to be released on November 11th, the single on August 19th and it's video, along with the option to pre-order ARTPOP and it's app on September 1st . A promo image from the ARTPOP photoshoot by Inez and Vinoodh was revealed. An "artRAVE" party was also announced for November 10th, preceding the app/album release and it was confirmed that Gaga would perform at the iTunes festival in September.

Details about ARTPOP and it's app were explained on

"Built by TechHAUS, the technological branch of HAUS OF GAGA, 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.

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 11, our "BIG BANG!" On this day HAUS OF GAGA venges with forte to bring the music industry into a new age; an age where art drives pop, and the artist once again is 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 electronic passion and fury, defining each artistic process from beginning to end, ARTPOP could mean anything. But for her, this is a celebration of obsession. And on November 10, she will host an evening of artRave exhibiting Haus of Gaga's projects as well as collaborations with

Inez & Vinoodh, Robert Wilson, Marina Abramovic, Jeff Koons"
