Lady Gaga Rush-Releases "Applause" Following Leak 

Facebook.com/LadyGagaFollowing a leak over the weekend that sent her into a tizzy, Lady Gaga has now officially released her highly-anticipated single, "Applause."

A message on Gaga's Facebook page reads, "DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS...WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY...MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD...POP MUSIC EMERGENCY #‎0DAYS Till APPLAUSE? MY NEW SINGLE COMES OUT TODAY. 911 SPREAD THIS MESSAGE."

The uptempo, synth-heavy tune has a somewhat '80s feel.  "I live for the applause, applause, applause," Gaga sings. "Give me the thing that I love/Make it real now/Put up your hands make 'em touch."

"Applause" was originally supposed to come out August 19.
