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."

The New Immortals: Lady Gaga

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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
