Lady Gaga Reveals ’ARTPOP’ Track List, Debuts ’Aura’ Lyric Video
Lady Gaga tweeted Wednesday afternoon that she would reveal the track list to her upcoming LP "ARTPOP" at midnight and that she would also debut the lyric video for her new song "Aura," which will be featured in the Robert Rodriguez film "Machete Kills," starring Gaga.
"AURA lyric video is coming by Robert Rodriguez’ MACHETE KILLS. It is late because I had it re-mixed+mastered. Blame me I’m a perfectionist!" the pop diva wrote, adding, "Tracklist is late because 2 songs are cockfighting for the #12 spot. I’ll let u know which cock wins at 9pm tonight :) get out the champagne."
Later on, on Wednesday night, Mother Monster said that she "commissioned a mural by my most dedicated Los Angels fans" to reveal the track list. Then, as promised, around midnight, Gaga re-tweeted her fan’s artwork, full of whacky titles and an unexpected feature by R&B icon, R. Kelly:
03. G.U.Y. (Girl Under You)
04. Sexxx Dreams
05. Jewels N’ Drugs (featuring T.I., Too Short and Twista)
07. Do What U Want (With My Body) (featuring R. Kelly)
12. Mary Jane Holland
Gaga performed some of the new material during iTunes Music Festival in London last month, including "Aura," "Sexxx Dreams," "Jewels N’ Drugs, "MANiCURE," and "ARTPOP."
Soon after announcing the track list, the singer uploaded the "Aura" lyric video, directed by Rodriguez." The clip features scenes from "Machete Kills," which opens Friday and features an ensemble cast, including Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr. and more.
Gaga later tweeted that she had been "celebrating the completion of ARTPOP with @RuPaul What a star. Taught me so much growing up and still does."
Take that Britney!
"ARTPOP" is out on Nov. 11. Check out the "Aura" lyric video below:
