Last Sunday, July 28, the Mother Monster has tweeted that the much-hyped album will come with an app upon pre-order at iTunes on August 19.

At that same day, the first single, “Applause” (co-written with DJ White Shadow), will also be available for purchase.

Lady Gaga shares to Women’s Wear Daily¬†about the song, “I’ll tell you that it is very fun. And that it’s full of happiness, because what I’m saying in the song essentially is that I live for the applause. I live for the way you cheer and scream for me.”

The “Born This Way” songstress collaborated once again with photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin¬†for Applause‘s artwork, who also did her recent nude V Magazine shoot that caused so much online buzz.

Conversely, Gaga is now wrapped in layers of colorful make-up and capped off with a head wrap and white fabric; in short, Gaga just being herself.

And to prove that she’s back with a vengeance, Lady Gaga will be returning to the spotlight on August 25 via a performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn.

Yes, folks, Lady Gaga can indeed intermarry art and pop music. (Lamsweerde and Matadin)
