Lady Gaga “Born This Way” Album Update

Listen up, Little Monsters: The first day of the New Year brought big news from one of the biggest names in pop.

As the clock struck midnight on the East Coast New Year’s Eve, Lady Gaga unveiled the release dates for her upcoming album and first single, Born This Way. The song will premiere on Feb. 13, the same night of the 2011 Grammy Awards, while the album is set to hit retailers May 23!

“THE SONG 2 3 11 THE RECORD 5 23 11,” Gaga posted on her Twitter page, fulfilling a previous promise of big news to be revealed as the clock ran out on 2010.

Gaga’s post was accompanied by a photo of the half-naked singer wearing little more than a jean jacket with the phrase “Born This Way” emblazoned across the back.

Who’s excited!?
