Lady Gaga is over the moon about the release of her upcoming album, “Born This Way.”
At 12:01 am on New Year’s Day, the “Alejandro” singer posted a black and white photo, taken by British photographer Nick Knight, showing her flashing her nude rear end as she whips her hair to the right to reveal a jacket with the words “Born This Way” spray painted on the back.
“THE SONG 2 13 11 THE RECORD 5 23 11,” she tweeted along with the photo, indicating that the album’s title track will drop on Feb. 13 — the same day as the Grammy awards — while the album will hit shelves on May 23.
The original photo was also posted on the fashion website SHOWStudio.com, which was founded by Knight.
“I think no pants is sexy. I love the naked human body,” she told London’s Daily Star last year. “I was working in strip clubs when I was 18.”
Gaga teased more than her body this weekend. On New Year’s Eve, the singer appeared to be flashing some lyrics to her first single.
