In a Björk-ian twist, Lady Gaga has revealed on her website that her new record ARTPOP will come as an interactive app filled with videos for each song on the album, bonus music, games, magazines, chats, fashion updates and more.

Billed by Gaga as "a multimedia experience," the app will be available in iPad-, iPhone-, mobile- and computer-compatible versions. ARTPOP will also come in standard physical and digital formats that Gaga says "will be unique and different" from the app.

"You inspired me to create something that communicated with images, because YOU do," wrote Gaga. "YOU communicate with me and each other with .gifs and pictures, and artwork, graphics ALL DAY 24/7/YOU'RE an ARTPOP generation."

There's no official word on a release date for ARTPOP, but if her parenthetical postscript – "start asking for IPADS FOR XMAS!!" – is any indication, perhaps we'll see the new album this winter or early next year.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
