Lady Gaga is on the cover of Vogue this month, where she revealed a few more details about the forthcoming Born This Way album, which is due for release on May 23. The first single from the album, also titled “Born This Way,” is scheduled to premiere tomorrow (Feb. 11).
It seems unlikely that we’ll have to wait until May to hear most of this material, unless Gaga’s label Interscope are somehow able to keep the album locked away in a vault several hundred feet below sea level. But while we wait, at least we now know that it will include 17 tracks, some of which were played to Vogue during their interview with the star.
"Are you ready? I don’t think you’re ready,” she says to interviewer Jonathan Van Meter, before playing him songs from the album. Tracks titled “Government Hooker” and “Judas” aren’t likely to go down well in middle America, especially as the latter is slated as the second single from the record, although Gaga is no doubt reveling in the chance to cause a little controversy. The track titles revealed for Born This Way so far look like this:
Born This Way
Edge of Glory
You and I
