Lady Gaga has announced that her new album “Artpop” will be a full multi-media project released on to smart phones and iPads. The controversial singer is planning a completely interactive experience for her fans when the project is released early next year.
My own interest in Lady Gaga has wavered since her last album, “Born This Way”. I am however intrigued by this project and excited to see how this project develops. Could this be a whole new way of artists releasing their music?
Here is the statement from Gaga on her website littlemonsters.com
“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.”
