Lady Gaga called an audible today, a week prior to the scheduled release of her first single from ARTPOP and on the same day that fellow pop superstar Katy Perry dropped a new song.
DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS…WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY…MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 12, 2013
With that, “Applause” was given to eager Little Monsters around the world, and has the music industry working overdrive as two of the biggest names in music drop highly-anticipated material on the same day.
ARTPOP is still slated for a November 11 release.
