It's not just that glittering ball that's going to drop on New Year's Eve. Lady Gaga will unveil a major announcement on the big night.
"Merry Christmas little monsters! I love you with all my heart. My gift to you is a BORN THIS WAY announcement Midnight on NEW YEARS EVE," Gaga recently tweeted of her forthcoming CD.
Though the 24-year-old singer didn't share any additional details with her fans, MTV News reports that she has been planning her surprise and her new album for quite some time.
"I've been working on it for months now, and I feel very strongly that it's finished right now," Gaga said of "Born This Way" in June. "It came so quickly. Some artists take years; I don't. I write music every day."
Gaga has described "Born This Way" as " a marriage of electronic music with major, epic, dare I even say, metal or rock and roll, pop, anthemic style melodies with really sledge-hammering dance beats." The first single is expected to be released in February, with the album hitting stores shortly afterward.
"It's really written by the fans, they really wrote it for me because every night they're funneling so much into me. So I wrote it for them," Gaga says of the CD. "'Born This Way' is all about my little monsters and me, Mother Monster."
