But Gaga is in the middle of a world tour. How can she be expected to promote a new album/single bang in the middle of that? plus how does a new album release in the middle of a tour effect that tour? its alright chatting in a private chatroom to ''monsters'' but its the general public she needs to be appealing to.

It seems to me they are rushing this out for some reason and after the balls up they made with Born This Way I expected them to have learned their lession. It doesn't appear to be the case.
We don't know how it is planned, so we cannot really call them out for announcing the title now. We knew she was releasing a new album, now we have a title for it, that's all.

Gaga has almost all of October and November off, as of now.

This might change when she announced the Latin America tour dates though.

I think she is giving herself some periods of rest because of how she majorly burnt out during The Monster Ball.

I am responding to the points Josh and toanythingtaboo have made.

She is rumoured to be announcing US tour dates for the spring. I can't see how she will be able to promote a new album while still being on tour with the previous one.

Seems too rushed and too crammed.

I think she does have time off, so as she has breaks in her tour, she will be doing promo work. I suspect she will be sampling some new work soon at her dates.

It does feel a bit rushed, I agree. I wouldn't have minded the new album to be released late next year, to give her something of a cooling period if nothing else.

I don't really want to comment until we see how it fully unravels with publicity and tour dates.

Personally, i don't think she will announce those tour dates. The BTW era has been going for almost 2 years now and she will probably think about the new album which should out early next year.

Also in another thread regarding this topic, Someone said "The Art Of Pop" would made a better title for the album and i feel the same way about that as well. ARTPOP doesn't really sit well with me as a title

I don't mind it, but it really doesn't feel like an album title at all. Maybe a single, but it just doesn't feel big enough to be an album title. Although I believe the Colour and Font of an album title is important, so we'll see.

On a slightly different point, does anyone else not really like the font of "Born this Way". Go and look if you have a copy and it just looks very...not Born this Way (if that makes sense.)

My opinion is that she should have waited until 2014.

I didn't have an issue with this title either. I don't think it will mean anything near as deep as people are expecting though. I can also see why Warhol fans aren't pleased with her doing this.

On the standard edition? The tacky metallic thing? Yeah. Well the whole Gagacycle is awful.

I just think it was a bad idea using that cover.

I hate it still. Worst part is that the deluxe edition still had that thing on the back cover.

And it's horrific that she replicates the Gagacycle on tour. *vomit smilie*

If I had the nerve I would buy the CD single of Born This Way and replace the cover.

It really is bad. What does it represent? That's one thing I never looked into.

I have no idea. I just thought it was one of those things.

Gagacycle is about being endlessly transformative and living halfway between fantasy and reality. I also think the image connotes Gaga as being the vehicle of the message etc.

I'd wager it was ultimately her rock n roll version of Bowie's Diamond Dogs album cover, though.

I don't like it visually, but I do think it's kind of awesomely awful. So kitsch and 80's metal. I bloody loved the rest of her artwork images though.

But Gaga is in the middle of a world tour. How can she be expected to promote a new album/single bang in the middle of that? plus how does a new album release in the middle of a tour effect that tour? its alright chatting in a private chatroom to ''monsters'' but its the general public she needs to be appealing to.

It seems to me they are rushing this out for some reason and after the balls up they made with Born This Way I expected them to have learned their lession. It doesn't appear to be the case.
She has October/November off, and I dare say there's been a lot of prepping during her July/August break.

The tour is wrapping up at the end of March, just before the album is released.

It's not really raising any red flags, for me. Yet.

She can promo the album still. The BTW ball ends in December with a chance of being continued next year. She may change the tracklisting and add the new songs from the album to the set list.

She needs to do something similar to 'The Fame' or it will be a disaster. 'BTW' was a complete flop compared to 'The Fame'

Isn't ARTPOP technically her third album? Not her fourth? I thought The Fame Monster was an EP/mini album.

If she does something similar to The Fame, it will be endless "She should be trying something new" and "She should be reinventing herself, like Madonna." It's hard to win in some cases. It just needs to be fresh and fun.

You see, some countries got it as an album and others, like the UK, got it included with The Fame, so it depends. I personally class TFM as it's own album, because it has it's own identity, in a sense.

Oh right, I see. I personally like to think of it as an EP. But yeah, each to their own I guess haha.

i actually liked the gagacycle approach...reminded me of Terminator in some ways was very 80s as Taboo said which i think was the point of it too.

glad i went for deluxe though, although it was just an upclose of her face but nevermind...

hopefully its not spray paint cover though...as you guys have mentioned...Britney has done it in HIAM, Nicki has recently done it...will be a bit trend following haha....but i doubt it of course as warhol aint about that....unless it is a "death" in paint :O

I doubt she'd be as "obvious" with the imagery as going anywhere near pop art cliches.

I'm expecting Klein for the artwork.
