Lady Gaga is always thinking ahead of the curve, so this news about her upcoming ARTPOP album is not surprising.
Late yesterday, the singer posted a statement on her website announcing that her upcoming LP is going to be more than an album. It's also going to be some kind of interactive app. Gaga described it in her own words:
Im excited to tell you all that ARTPOP is going to be a multimedia experience that comes in different forms. The most major way to fully immerse yourself in ARTPOP is through the APP. ARTPOP will be released as an IPAD, iPhone, mobile and computer compatible application (WORLD) that is completely interactive with chats, films for every song, extra music, content, gaga inspired games, fashion updates, magazines, and more still in the works!
I will also be able to upload new things to the APP all the time, the same way i upload to twitter and LM.com. You inspired me to create something that communicated with images, because YOU do, YOU communicate with me and each other with .gifs and pictures, and artwork, graphics ALL DAY 24/7/ YOU'RE an ARTPOP generation.
Im hoping you will all continue to grow together and stay connected through your creativity. much love. love, gaga p.s (start asking for IPADS FOR XMAS!!) its gonna be so fun. but dont worry. it will also be released in the regular physical and digitals which will be unique and different to the app.
Gaga might be the most famous person doing something innovative like this, but she's not the first. Earlier this year, Björk released her latest album, Biophilia, as an iPad and iPhone app.
Gaga's idea still sounds incredibly cool. The only question that remains for all the Little Monsters out there: do you have your iPad yet?
