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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
