Lady Gaga "Applause"

Lady Gaga "Applause"
Today (August 12), chart-topping star Lady Gaga served up the first preview track from her impending ARTPOP LP, titled "Applause."

The single rides the Top 40's continued fascination with house-inspired pop, with synths skronking alongside a deft, if forgettable , beat. Gaga's theatrical performance, meanwhile, rips into critics, people who think "nostalgia is for geeks" and more before turning to her little monsters to note that she lives for their approval and applause.

You can hear her song about "arts, pop culture and me" down below.

As previously reported, Gaga issues ARTPOP on November 11 through Interscope Records.
