Pop superstar Lady Gaga is gearing up for a very busy schedule ahead. The ‘Poker Face’ singer has announced that the first single from her highly-anticipated album ‘ARTPOP’ will be ‘Applause’ and the Grammy Award-winning artist has already released the upcoming single’s artwork, which was shot by Inez & Vinoodh. ‘Applause’ will be released worldwide on August 19, 2013.

Lady Gaga to release new single Applause on August 19, 2013

The multi-platinum star’s latest, fourth studio album and app is scheduled for a November 11, 2013 release via Streamline/Interscope Records and will be a follow-up to a very successful 2011 release ‘Born This Way’. After experiencing a hip injury which forced her to cancel 25 sold-out shows during her massive ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour, undergoing a complicated surgery and subsequent long recovery in 2012, things are looking up for the ‘Alejandro’ singer these days.

Due to huge audience demand, the superstar’s new record ‘ARTPOP’ will be available for pre-order on August 19, 2013, two weeks earlier than what was originally planned. Lady Gaga’s loyal fans who visit digital music retailers on August 19, 2013 will be allowed to buy the brand new single ‘Applause’ and pre-order their copy of ‘ARTPOP’ at the same time with just one simple click.

The pop icon will debut her upcoming single in style, as she is set to perform ‘Applause’ at MTV Video Music Awards from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on August 25, 2013.
