Lady Gaga will release Alejandro on 28 June, available on CD, 7” picture disc and as a digital bundle. A video was shot with noted fashion photographer Steven Klein earlier this month and the premiere will be announced shortly. The debut of Lady Gaga’s last video, Telephone (feat. Beyoncé), was a global news event and her Bad Romance promo is the most watched YouTube video ever, with over 200 million views and counting.
Alejandro is lifted from The Fame Monster, a two-disc re-package of Lady Gaga’s 7x platinum album The Fame that boasts no fewer than four UK number one hit singles, including Telephone (feat. Beyoncé) and the twice chart-topping Bad Romance. Her other UK number ones are Poker Face and Just Dance, the biggest and third-biggest selling singles of 2009 respectively.
The Remix, a 17-track album of rare and hard-to-find versions of songs from The Fame Monster, debuted at number three in the UK album charts this week. It includes remixes by Pet Shop Boys, Stuart Price, Passion Pit and Chew Fu feat. Marilyn Manson, as well as new reworkings by Sound of Arrows and Monarchy.
