Lady Gaga’s fans won’t have to wait until September to learn the name of her next release after all. After tweeting out a photo of her new tattoo, which reads ARTPOP, last week, she took to Twitter over the weekend to confirm that the ink is indeed the name of her 2013 album release.
“Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title, *its all in the details* good morning twitter!” she wrote on Sunday.
Mother Monster originally revealed her plan to drop the album’s title in September back in June before apparently getting antsy and releasing the name a month ahead of schedule. It’s a title she’s had in mind since MTV News spoke to her last year.
“I’ve started writing it and I have the name for it, and all the concepts are beginning to flourish and take place,” she said in December. “I’m excited to put it out, but it’s not done yet. So I’ll put it out when it’s done.”
Gaga has been making time to record ARTPOP while on her Born This Way tour. She reportedly enlisted the help of Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich for the album. The twosome hit the studio with Gaga’s longtime collaborator DJ White Shadow in Los Angeles.
She also recently teased fans with a new song, blasting it out of her car while in New York City. She even implied that the dance track would be the first single from the new album. DJ White Shadow produced the track.
Gaga has also been playing her new piano-heavy song “Princess Die” while on tour. During one stop, she opened up a bit about her next album. “Let’s just say I feel, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity,” she said. “And I feel that on the next album, there’s a lack of maturity — it’s a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility.”
