LADY GAGA "APPLAUSE" MUSIC VIDEO AUGUST 19 & "ARTPOP" APP IS FREE!
Lady Gaga took to Twitter for a little ARTPOP app Q&A revealing when we can expect her new music video! Hey Little Monsters Happy Thursday here at Musiq Nation, welcome back. On July 31 Mother Monster engaged in a little fun Twitter Q&A with fans. As you already know, her first "ARTPOP" single "APPLAUSE" is coming very soon on August 19th and the most exciting reveal in the Q&A is that the music video is coming the same day! Gaga has been collaborating with photography duo Inez and Vinnodh who also directed the "APPLAUSE" music video, shot in Los Angeles at Paramount Studios. And the other exciting details revealed in the Twitter session are all about the innovative ARTPOP app. Gaga actually introduced us to the album slash app last September, explaining it will be available as an iPad, iPhone, mobile and computer application. And what will it do? The app will include, "completely interactive with chats, films for every song, extra music, content, gaga inspired games, fashion updates, magazines, and more..." The latest news of the app came when Gaga announced her single and album release date, on Facebook she explained, "...the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion, and technology with a new interactive worldwide community -- 'the auras'." Today, in her Twitter answers Gaga announced the ARTPOP app will now be available for android, and will be accessible for Little Monsters worldwide. And the best part? The app is free. You can download the app from the iTunes app store and then purchase the album through the app, or just buy the album how you would normally. So it seems to us the app is just a brilliant extension of her social site LittleMonsters.com. But of course Gaga had a more creative way to describe the app tweeting, "The APP is an essence, an interactive jewel case." And in the Q&A we find out that you will be able to pre-order the app on August 19th just like you can the album. So will Gaga revolutionize album releasing with this app? We think so. Other artists who have released apps include Bjork's "Biophilia" in 2011 where each song had its own interactive section in the application. And just last month Jay Z did a deal with Samsung to release his album as an app to Samsung phone users. What do you think of albums as apps and what are you most looking forward to in Gaga's?
