Lady Gaga Teases ‘ARTPOP’ Track in Rehearsal Clip

Pop star rails against 'swine' in piano ballad that builds to a raucous banger

By |

Lady Gaga previewed a somber piano ballad in a clip of her rehearsing for her upcoming performance at the iTunes Festival — though it doesn't stay soft and twinkly for long. The track starts with Gaga a potential suitor, crooning/chastising, "I know, I know, I know, I know you want me / You're just a pig inside a human body / Squeal, squeal, squeal you're so disgusting / You're just a pig inside, swine." And with that the song begins a gutteral build that opens up into a raucous synth riff while Gaga wails away on a drum kit.

The track comes with no official name, though based on the hashtag accompanying the clip, "swinefest," it looks like the song could be dubbed, "Swine."

The cut is the second we've heard from Gaga's upcoming album/app, ARTPOP, out November 11th. You can already check out the record's first official single, "Applause," which she performed this past weekend at the VMAs and has already gotten a characteristically over-the-top music video.

If the teaser for the new song's not enough to satiate your monstrous appetite, you'll be able to catch Gaga's performance at the iTunes Festival when it's live streamed on Monday September 1st, starting at 4 p.m. ET.
