Lady Gaga announces release date for new album 'Born This Way'

Follow-up to 'The Fame Monster' will be released on May 23
January 1, 2011 |
Lady Gaga has announced the release date for her new album 'Born This Way'.

The singer made the announcement via her official Twitter page, Twitter.com/ladygaga, writing that the record will be released on May 23 and that the album's title track will be made available on February 13. She also posted a picture of herself sporting a leather jacket with the album's title written on the back.

February 13 is also the date for the 2011 Grammy Awards. Lady Gaga is nominated for six awards, with the release date leading to speculation that she will perform the song at the ceremony.

'Born This Way' is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Fame Monster', which was the biggest-selling album in the world in 2010, shifting over 5.8million copies.

I think it's an uptempo. She performed it like a ballad but it doesn't matter.

She sang a few parts of the song during her winning speech in MTV VMA 2010. She performed it like a ballad.

You think so? I'd rather have that picture than one of her recent style -- yellow hair and caked on makeup.

Oh thank you everyone... i didn't watch the Vmas...they are so boring, lol. But what I did know was that she announced born this way album.

It sounds as the intro to the song, after that snippet, comes the dance music.

I agree. Her earlier fashion was better. Now, her fashion is forced, she's trying too hard.

Yeah, me too, definately. Still think there's better pics from that 'era' though.

"Trying" too hard? I've never understood this, I dont think she's "trying" too hard, rather "overdoing" it, which is different. Conciously or not.

However, I believe this will be really good, hopefully it's different from recent material.

I don't agree with the assumption that this is the first single. Just because on twitter she said "the song", since she wouldn't have room to say "the single".

However, my prediction is possibly another Elton Grammy duet and the first single....whether it be BTW or something else.


Who knows, maybe first single is ballad/mid-tempo with 2nd, more upbeat dance song closely followed by.

I thought that was a joke because of Bruce Springsteen? or is it a copy of Bruce Springsteen? :lol:

definitely excited for this. And it's good to know she will stick to her album date because her single will surely quickly top the charts.

A second single will be released just before the album comes out, very smart.:D
The date gap is too big if there isn't a second single before. Plus that the song will sell incredibly because there's no album out yet. So +4 milion is guarenteed no matter what. Second song most likely will do a lot worse with a third song not even a big hit, since everyone has the album already. That my guess. Same happend to Britney, with Stronger, a song with alot of potention, but because everyone had the album, the single didn't do well on the charts..
