Lady Gaga’s iTunes Fest rehearsals: A taste of ARTPOP

Lady Gaga released rehearsal videos from her upcoming iTunes Festival performance, and it’s the first listen we’ve gotten to three new songs from ARTPOP.

Lady Gaga gave all of us Little Monsters a three-song taste of what to expect from tomorrow’s iTunes Festival performance.

If these tracks are any indication, from industrial to pop to funk, Gaga’s upcoming ARTPOP is going to be one crazy, diverse album.

Gaga first posted a clip of an unnamed track that starts out with her on the piano singing, “I know, I know, I know, I know you want me.”

But the song soon turns industrial, and Gaga goes all Nine Inch Nails as she bangs on a drum kit.

“You’re just a pig inside a human body / Squeal, squeal, squeal you’re so disgusting / You’re just a pig inside, swine.”

Gaga doesn’t give us a name for the piggy song. NIN already took “March of the Pigs,” so for now, we’ll just refer to it as the Twitter hashtag she posted: #Swinefest.

But #Swinefest isn’t the only song we got to hear. Gaga posted two other rehearsal videos. One of the minute-long clips is for an upbeat addicted-to-love anthem called “MANiCURE.”

The other clip Gaga released is a funky Prince-like song called “Sex Dreams.”

Lady Gaga’s iTunes Festival performance will be broadcast on iTunes from London’s Roundhouse. Gaga will be taking the stage Sept. 1 at 4/3c, and from the looks of the rehearsals, this is one online concert not to miss!
