Lady Gaga is offering a free app for her forthcoming album ARTPOP.
The singer has been heavily promoting her next record, set for release in November.
Gaga recently revealed via Twitter she’s releasing an app for Android and iOS devices that will support the album.
“The ARTPOP app is Free, available in App Stores on your device, you can purchase the music through the ARTPOP app once it’s downloaded.
“Or you can purchase the album at the music store+download the free app separately at the app store,” she wrote.
The app will be available worldwide. It is part of an interactive multimedia project which will allow listeners to talk to each other about the music, she said.
“The APP is in essence, an interactive jewel case,” Gaga continued.
ARTPOP will be available from November 11.
It is the singer’s first album since 2011′s Born This Way.
The star recently announced her first single from the record, entitled Applause, will be available August 19.
The album and app will be available for pre-order the same day.
Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, will debut Applause at the MTV Video Music Awards the following week.
The August 25 performance will mark a major triumph for the singer, who underwent hip surgery in February to treat a hip break, a labral tear and severe inflammation of her joints.
The star was wheelchair-bound for several weeks and had to cancel the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball concert tour, as well as put the album on hold.
