[artist id="3061469"]Lady Gaga[/artist] has always said she owes a lot to her fans, so to ensure they can all afford to buy The Fame Monster on November 23, the singer is releasing three versions of the disc, two deluxe versions that include parts of her original Fame album and a standard version will contain only new songs.
"In the midst of my creative journey composing The Fame Monster, there came an exciting revelation that this was in fact my sophomore album," she said in a statement. "I would not add, nor take away any songs from this EP. It is a complete conceptual and musical body of work that can stand on its own two feet. It doesn't need The Fame."
She went on to say that by releasing a lower-cost version of the album (priced at $9.99 on her site), she is showing her appreciation of her followers. "We may have an economy, but music has no economy," she continued. "I will release four or more singles from The Fame Monster, tour the world with the Monster Ball Tour and most importantly, I insist on honoring my fans with an affordable new album, an album that is as loyal to them, as they have been me."
Of course, Gaga is also making sure that if you're new to loving everything Gaga, then The Fame Monster Deluxe Edition (out November 23, $18.98 on her site) and the Super Deluxe Fame Monster Pack (out December 15, $99.98) will provide a newcomer with everything they need to bring some Haus of Gaga into their lives. The super-deluxe pack even includes a lock of hair from one of her wigs.
"For those who do not have my debut album, there are a series of collectible double-disc editions that include both albums and artwork conceived by the Haus of Gaga in collaboration with our mentor, Hedi Slimane," she said. "Hear the music, see the show, live and love yourself ... Lady Gaga."
