Lady Gaga 'Born This Way' Single Out Free with Target Pre-Order
Lady Gaga's quick Twitter announcement on Monday -- "Can't wait any longer, single coming Friday" -- was not a tease to her fans, as the pop star's new single, "Born This Way," is officially set to be released tomorrow (Feb. 11). Target has also announced a partnership with Gaga that will let fans download the single for free tomorrow by pre-ordering Gaga's sophomore album, "Born This Way," on the company's website.
In addition, Target will carry an exclusive deluxe edition of the album, out May 23, that will include three aditional songs and five remixes. Gaga fans can pre-order the album at Target.com/gaga beginning at 9 A.M. EST tomorrow, and the single will be available for free with the pre-order through Feb. 26.
"We're excited to be working with Target on the launch of 'Born This Way,'" says Steve Berman, vice chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M, in a statement. "We always have a tremendously successful relationship when we get together on something like this. Target provides us with the perfect platform to really turn the spotlight on the incredible album that Lady Gaga has made."
Lady Gaga was originally set to unveil her highly anticipated next single on Sunday (Feb. 13), when she will perform the song at the Grammy Awards ceremony, but Monday's announcement on Twitter bumped up the release two days. Last month, the singer personally leaked the song's lyrics and credits on Twitter as a thank-you to her fans, and she posted the single artwork a day later.
DJ White Shadow, who is listed as the single's producer along with Gaga and Fernando Garibay, told Billboard.com last week that the song was recorded "around the world" and that it "sounds like it reads, but not like you think until you hear it."
