Lady Gaga revealed more details about her hotly anticipated new album Born This Way when she called in to On-Air With Ryan Seacrest earlier today.

According to Gaga, the next single from the record is called "Judas" and will come out a few weeks before the album is released on May 23rd. The song is co-produced by her regular collaborator RedOne. Gaga told Seacrest that she co-produced all of the tracks on Born This Way, and wrote all of the music herself.

Gaga promises that the new album will be very eclectic in style. "I explore lots of different genres in tandem with dance music and electronic music  and industrial music," she said. She later mentioned that one track, "Hair," is a club track with a "Bruce Springsteen vibe" that will feature Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band on saxophone.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
