Lady Gaga Applause single Released!

Lady Gaga's new single Applause may have leaked ahead of its official release on 19 August, but her famously-fervent fanbase is leading the battle to keep the song under wraps.

Lady Gaga, who until now, spent the summer promoting her forthcoming album “Artpop” by appearing on the Internet without clothing.

In a not entirely surprising turn of events, Applause was rush-released this evening to radio stations and Apple's iTunes Store in the US, with other countries to follow. Gaga tweeted the news in characteristically bullish style as a "POP MUSIC EMERGENCY", blaming the leak on hackers.

Lady Gaga herself seemed initially upset by news of the leak, tweeting "Lord, in HEAVEN WHY" and "YOU JUST COULDNT WAIT THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR ONE SATURDAY", before appearing to see the funny side and inviting fellow leakee Katy Perry to "grab some shovels and fuck up some hackers".
Lady Gaga's objections to the Applause leak are more likely to be artistic rather than commercial. Sales of the single are unlikely to be hurt, but music blogs passing judgement on the track from a few brief snatches seems to have touched a nerve.

Lady Gaga's official pre-release plans for ARTPOP, which is due to come out on 11/11, are unclear. It's now common for big albums to be streamed online for up to a week before their release, with Apple among the keenest companies to secure exclusives.

Separately, Katy Perry - the rival pop singer also released her new single, "Roar", over the weekend.
