Lady Gaga’s new single ‘Judas” PLUS her new album cover

“Judas” is the follow-up to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” the title track off of her much-anticipated third album, to be released on May 23rd. This new single was to be released on April 19th, but leaked early, leading to an official release for full online streaming and for purchase on iTunes (Or perhaps it was some clever marketing? GagaNews.com noted an interesting analogy on their Twitter: “Judas leaked 4 days before the official release date and Judas betrayed Jesus 4 days before Easter!”).

Poised to be another hit for Gaga with its pounding beats and dark religious allusions, “Judas” is a departure from “Born This Way,” but will still have people dancing along. While the latter was a fun, disco-esque pop number, Gaga’s latest is reminiscent, if not a one-up of the industrial sounds of The Fame Monster. I think if “Bad Romance” and “Dance in the Dark” had a baby with some mutations in its DNA, you’d get “Judas.”

UPDATED: Gaga has unveiled the cover art for the Born This Way album, with photography by Nick Knight.
