Lady Gaga, "Born This Way" (TBA)
It seems like an eternity since Lady Gaga released her first album "The Fame," and though "The Fame Monster" tided many fans over, "Born This Way" will be her true sophomore set and return. Gaga was busy on her Monster Ball world tour, which would explain some of the delay. But the singer/songwriter/performer promised a first single by February and the album to appear shortly thereafter. She said it's "a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock 'n' roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats." Look for a very special message from Gaga at midnight on NYE.
