Fans have been eagerly anticipating new music from Lady Gaga, and now Mother Monster is letting her little monsters know that the new year will bring new music from her.
Gaga broke the news to fan site Lady-Gaga.net that Born This Way's first single will drop in February, and added that the album is like "bad kids going to church, having fun on a high level."
"I miss you guys so much," Gaga said in a video posted on the website. "Thank you for all of your support and I cannot wait to play you Born This Way. It is killing me."
Gaga recently told a crowd in Poland, where she was on her Monster Ball Tour, that the release will be "the greatest album of this decade."
"I promise you, I'll never let you down. And not for nothing: The album's finished and it's f---ing really good," Gaga said from the stage.
While no release date has been set for Born This Way, there has been much discussion from her camp about what this album will sound like. Her manager has said it's "incredible," while her label boss, Akon, explained that Gaga is taking things to the "next level" with this album.
"If I was going to compare it to her previous work, I would definitely say it's a notch up," he said. "It's like she's slowly taking you on to this journey down this road. If she were to just drastically do it, she probably would have lost everybody from the first album, but once the sound was created and established, now we can use that as a tool to grab all the monsters and walk them down this graveyard. It's crazy. It's amazing."
