Lady Gaga is preparing to release a new single called "Hair."
The May 16 release date is just one week before her new album comes out in full, and will be the fourth track from Born This Way released ahead of time.
Usually, when an artist is gearing up for the release of their album they’ll offer up two singles, one months before it drops, and one just before the album.
Obviously, Lady Gaga is unconventional. We've heard the title track, the promo single “Edge of Glory” days later, and most recently, "Judas."
“Born This Way” spent more than a month at No. 1 on the Billboard hot 100 chart; but “Judas,” peaked at No. 10, then fell to No. 20 by its third week.
Of course, the Lady Gaga's “Judas” music video has been watched at least 15 million times online, so it's hard to call that a disappointment.
How will "Hair" do? We'll find out starting Sunday.
