Lady Gaga really wants you to check out her new album, Artpop, on headphones. 

The singer teased the LP in a series of tweets this morning, emphasizing both the lush quality of her material and her hatred for poor fidelity. "oh, & just a suggestion... use HEADPHONES when listening to the new music, ARTPOP is ELECTRONIC CANDY & DELISH ON THE EARS," she wrote. "THE SPEAKERS ON YOUR COMPUTER are NOT ACCEPTABLE, unless you like hearing music underwater. I do not."

In a follow-up tweet, she roped in the album's producers (DJ White Shadow, Zedd, and Madeon) for one final plea: "PLEASE DO NOT MAKE US CRY AND LISTEN WITHOUT HEADPHONES."

Gaga also used hashtags like "Applause10DAYS," in a nod to her upcoming single, "Applause," which will be released on August 19th. Artpop, her third studio album, will be released by Interscope Records on November 11th.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
