It’s been a while since my last blog and now it’s time to blog about ARTPOP. We “all” gonna kick start a new moth from today on wards and all the Lady Gaga fans are getting ready for their Mother Monsters new album/app. Okay, enough with all that chatter and lets look at what ARTPOP is all about.
It’s a knowing fact that ARTPOP is not just an album, but it’s sort of a “project”. And it involves an app in its release, which can be downloaded for free from any app store on your device (GooglePlay and itunes). It is gonna be released on the 11th of November. Gaga conformed that everyone could socialize through the app on this day.
We also know the first single is a song called Applause which will be released on the 19th of this month (August). DJ White Shadow is the co-producer and co-writer for this tune. As Rolling Stone reveled that it may be an upbeat/danceable tune, or may be not.
Applause is . . . fun! “I’ll tell you that it is very fun,” Gaga said earlier this year. “And that it’s full of happiness, because what I’m saying in the song essentially is that I live for the applause.” Adds DJ White Shadow: “It’s just a fun song. There’s no political commentary… I watch people’s toes and they tap.” (Source: Rolling Stone)
Lady Gaga didn’t even forget to tweet few lines of her to-be-released single, by arousing the curiosity of the little monsters;
Gaga will perform Applause at MTV’s Video Music Awards on August 25th. “I’m sending a doppelgänger,” Gaga told Women’s Wear Daily. “I’m going this year as a fried egg instead of hard-boiled.”
Going back to ARTPOP, Zedd–the German DJ-producer who worked on several ARTPOP tracks–had told Rolling Stone that Gaga isn’t necessarily aiming for a typical radio-friendly sound. “She does not have to please anyone, and she is who she is. Whatever is dope is dope. We do whatever we want, and we don’t have to make a song that’s three minutes and 30 seconds just to fit the radio.” Guessing there’ll be pretty long song songs that may run about 5-6 minutes or even more.
From the information that I got so far, ARTPOP is an electronic dance music album or may be it is not. “We didn’t try to make an EDM album – but, at the same time, we didn’t try not to make an EDM album,” Zedd revealed to RS. Yup, everyone is so sneaky about giving out info about the album. Guess we have to wait till the 19th Aug to find out what it really is. Or may be it will leak before we know it.
