Lady Gaga Unveils ‘Applause’ Cover Art

Lady Gaga continues the slow, but steady promo for her third studio album ARTPOP (November 11). Mother Monster has just revealed the cover art for “Applause,” the album’s lead single set for an August 19 release. Shot by renowned photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the portrait is a rainbow-faced Gaga surrounded by black and white space.

“I live for the way you cheer and scream for me. Give me that thing that I love. Put your hands up, make them touch” are believed to be some of the lyrics.

Are you ready for a Gaga takeover?
