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

I'm expecting Klein for the artwork.
if she can do her own really iconic pose for him like his work with Madonna (just sublime artwork for the Confessions era!) he can do epic stuff with gaga tbh...he did Alejandro video with her too didnt he? as well as the current ads too for Fame!

Will link together nicely i reckon.

Yup. They seem chummy.

When fans asked her sound engineer if he knew what the album cover looked like, he replied "yes"...so it may have already been shot, which implies Klein considering they've been working together this year. Could be Nick Knight, though.

Judging by her repeated hints, I think the cover will have something to do with diamond tiaras and/or white roses. She's been posting a lot of personal shots and self pictures too, which could bring a non-professional image for the cover. Furthermore, she was musing about the difference in reality between a professional photographer and a personal candid too, so who knows.

for all we know the posts she has done of her self pics could indeed be the album booklet

But tbh i would love if Klein perhaps did the artwork and they did something insane with it tbh...as well we will have a taster of it all when the single is out there...but tbh like BTW the single cover may look nothin like the album shot cover

Looking forward to new material from GaGa. She isn't one of my favourite artists by a clear mile but I thought 'Bad Romance' and 'Judas' were fantastic and I found 'Born This Way' an interesting listen though most of it was just not for me.

She needs to do something similar to 'The Fame' or it will be a disaster. 'BTW' was a complete flop compared to 'The Fame'
We can argue until the cows go home and I rarely stick up for Gaga but BTW wasn't a flop.

I'm so excited for this. After BTW I was slightly disappointes because I didn't want her to abandon her analysis of pop culture in her music and thought she might so reading about this album is making me very happy! People keep moaning about her being pretentious but she always has been and she's delivered some killer pop records as well so as long as the material is good and the imagery is exciting I will be satisfied. I'm going to her concert in 5 weeks so I hope she sings something new, I want new material by the end of the year

it will be interesting to hear what aspects of BTW album she will incorporate into ARTPOP too...i mean i felt BTW had incorporated elements of Dance In The Dark into BTW really going for broke on the darkness, synths etc across the record....so with ARTPOP i hope there are elements of Schiesse and Heavy Metal Lover and Hooker perhaps...just total madness all round.

Well, Heavy Metal Lover was recorded about a month before BTW was released...so sonically that is her most recent song (excl. Princess Die). Plus it's a DJWS production, and he seems to be this albums primary producer.

If I was to hazard a guess at the direction of ARTPOP, I'd definitely say Heavy Metal Lover/Scheisse/Government Hooker on acid.

I am curious to see what producers she is gonna work with. I want her to get away from RedOne for an album or two. I think she should hook up with Demolition Crew (AKA, Nelly furtado's husband) They do dark productions on songs.

I like the title. I think it sounds quite fun and, after Born This Way - which was far from fun - that will be quite welcome.

With Born This Way I literally had to force myself to listen repeatedly in order to appreciate it. It was a bit of a struggle getting into it and even now there are some songs on it I am forced to skip because I really can't be arsed investing any more of my time *trying* to like them. (Step up Scheisse, Hair, etc.)

On the other hand, The Fame was a joy to listen to. It was easy to "get". That doesn't mean it was devoid of any credibility, creativity or artistry. It was simple but GREAT pop music.

That's what I hope the next album is like. Not the same sound as The Fame, or Born This Way, something simple, fun and amazing.

To be honest I have made a decision to avoid the hype as that is what killed Born This Way for me. So I am not buying into the ''this will be like The Fame'' days just yet. This is also the reason I voiced concerns about revealing too much info, too early on.

ill be there for that!

what has this ZEDD done, very intriguing!

As for Demo Crew it would be an idea...Im Addicted and gang bang are EPIC on MDNA! and working on Nellys (ofc.) The Spirit Indestructible...could be a definite idea...ALternative styles, intense Dub...hmmmm.

ZEDD is very EDM and new to the pop scene, I can only think of his Justin Bieber (!), but his stuff is pretty cool:

...and he did this remix of MTN for her:

I have faith, Gaga really seems to bring out the best in her producers. Fernando/DJWS/RedOne pre (and outwith) Gaga are largely nothing special.

I know what you mean. BTW was an album that took it's self too seriously. Too too seriously.

I don't really get it when people say that, because how the hell can an album that has songs called Highway Unicorn (Road to Love) possibly take itself too seriously?! If you really sit down and listen to the lyrics, it certainly doesn't do that. That's one of the things that I like about Gaga, she's incredibly self-aware and has always had a twinkle in her eye when it comes to her work. I think that's what everyone liked about her originally and a lot of poeple missed from Alejandro onwards, as it never really showed in the visuals, but I would say it's definitely there in the music.

Not a flop but if you put it next to 'The Fame', it flopped, because 'The Fame' was so successful. 'BTW' didn't produce any 'classic' songs like 'The Fame'

Albums only flop if they prove to be a financial loss for the company like how a film is at the box office. Lady Gaga was never gonna hit the sales she did with The Fame

Does it matter if an album doesn't produce any classic songs?

People really did have too much set high for her, i believe.

KNEW it from somewhere, of course that Marry The Night is on the deluxe

hmmm not sure how it will sound or work but i reckon if it is Progressive House meets Dub would be something pretty slick.

Dont like the DS article too much really, just due to personal preferences of course...but to me when they say Monster is the best i geniunely feel that aint the case as for me i only ever play 3 songs on it as the other 5 havent lasted too well with time whereas Born This Way (yeah maybe if 10 songs long would have been perfect tbh but still...) i feel has some corkers in there that never reached potential.

And also i dont want too much Redone either...unless its like Schiesse

No thought was really put into it by putting Art pop on an existing picture plus it's slightly similar to The Fame front cover

Gaga uploaded this to her Instagram account. If they're lyrics, I quite like them. I think one of the problems with Born This Way was that the lyrics weren't as streamlined as they could have been, and sometimes you can barely tell what she's saying, but these seem to be a bit more focused.

WOW, these lyrics are really interesting! For anyone who didn't see, on the picture she posted to reveal ARTPOP she also commented saying "we could, we could belong together. ARTPOP."

I'm so intrigued and excited for some new GaGa! i

Gaga will never again have the cultural impact of her debut. A volcano can only erupt for so long. She needs to either get away from dance music or make pretty much the best dance album ever.
