Lady Gaga Performs ARTPOP Tracks at iTunes FestivalBy: Courtney Wills - September 1, 2013
Lady Gaga debuted several new tracks from her upcoming album ARTPOP at the iTunes festival in London today. Performing at the Roundhouse, Gaga committed to debuting an hour to her unreleased album, which will hit stores in November.
Gaga uploaded a YouTube video early last week showing a rehearsal for “Swine,” which she would be performing September 1 at the iTunes festival. Three other tracks from ARTPOP, “Applause,” “Burqa” and “Manicure” had already made their ways to the Internet, though that will likely stop fans from purchasing the new album this fall.
Also performed at the Roundhouse tonight were title track, “ARTPOP,” “Jewels & Drugs,” featuring rapper T.I., “Sex Dreams” and “I Wanna Be With You.” She performed seven new songs at the festival.
Tonight’s performance was Lady Gaga’s first show since her hip surgery in February, and it appears she recuperated well.
Another exciting piece of news for Little Monsters is that her smash hit video “Telephone” with Beyonce, (from her last and third album, The Fame Monster) will be continued on her newest record. She recently told U.K. radio station KISS FM: “I’m very excited to be filming it and doing it. I will say that one of the songs I will be playing at the Roundhouse is meant to be the continuation.”
While the single, “ARTPOP” did not meet expectations on the music charts after its unleashing this week, her single, “Applause” did garner 14.5 million views on VEVO in only one day, setting a new record.
ARTPOP will be released on November 11.
