Lady Gaga Releases Full Version of Aura, Unveils ARTPOP Track List
Lady Gaga, ARTPOP
Lady Gaga's second single "Aura" from her upcoming "Artpop" album has fully surfaced online. A rough demo of the single was first heard in early August and part of the finished version then appeared in the Machete Kills trailer in which Lady Gaga makes her acting debut.
After the demo version of Aura was released in August, fans heard the track during Gaga's iTunes Festival performance in London. The distorted, muffled version that leaked over the summer is now very much polished and cleaned up, making it seem as though this is the finished product. Along with the fully released version of "Aura", Lady Gaga unveiled the track list to her upcoming album "ARTPOP". So what's "Aura" like? Well the EDM-infused dance track will either have you dancing throughout the day, or wondering how this song could pass as music. The song is definitely loud and bizarre, a staple of Lady Gaga tracks, and the heavy electronic sounds tend to overwhelm Gaga's vocal effects.
Artpop is Lady Gaga's upcoming third studio album set to be released first in Germany on November 8, 2013, through Interscope Records. Initially slated for an early 2013 release, the release of Artpop was postponed indefinitely after Gaga developed synovitis and a labral tear to her hip that needed surgical correction; which also led her to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball concert tour. The official album announcement, released on July 12, mentioned that Gaga will be hosting an "artRave" party the night before the album's release that will officially launch the album as well as showcase projects she has been working on in collaboration with the Haus of Gaga, Dutch photographer duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, avant-garde theater director Robert Wilson, performance artist Marina Abramovi? and artist Jeff Koons.
