Lady Gaga has previewed a new track from 'ARTPOP' called 'G.U.Y.'
The singer released a snippet of the song - an acronym for 'Girl Under You' - which was co-produced by Zedd, who also worked on the tracks 'Aura' and 'Donatella' from the album.
In the clip, Gaga can be heard saying: "Love me, love me / Please retweet / Let me be the girl under you that makes you cry / I want to be that G.U.Y."
Gaga has previously talked about the song, and its underlying feminist message.
She said: "Any kind of feminist has valid views for herself about what it means to be a feminist, but, as a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man - being under him.
"I actually wrote a song about it on my album, it's called 'G.U.Y' and it stands for 'Girl Under You'. So wearing make-up, smelling delicious and having suckable, kissable, edible things between your limbs is something I find strengthening because I know that when I pick the right guy, I can let him have it.
"Some women feel oppressed by make-up and clothing, and here's to them, they have every right to feel that way as well."
'ARTPOP' is released on November 11.
