Is it just me or has it felt a little quiet on the Lady Gaga front for a bit too long? Just a couple days after getting the unveiling of ARTPOP‘s cover, we now get the tracklist for the new disc, thanks to Vulture, and I have to say I’m a little underwhelmed. Or rather, kind of shocked. Given the theatrics of “Applause,” I wasn’t expecting all the song names to sounds like weird Ke$ha rejects. Like, “Jewels N’ Drugs”? With T.I.?! And R. Kelly?
That being said, we do get a song called “Fashion!” but come on, that’s just too easy to make fun of; especially the unnecessary exclamation. What do you think, Little Monsters, is your standing ovation starting to fade to a polite golf clap? Check out the tracks, below, and also take a listen to the new track, “Aura,” from the disc, embedded below (excuse the Machete Kills sound bytes in the audio). ARTPOP is out November 11th.
