Lady GaGa announced the title of her junior album, ARTPOP, via LittleMonsters.com on August 12, 2012 by posting a picture of her arm tattooed with the title.  Her fans have been eagerly awaiting the release since, but due to the singer’s surgery in the Spring, the album was pushed back along with her Born This Way Ball Tour being cancelled. Almost a year later, on July 28, 2013, she announced the title and release date of her newest single and the release date of her latest LP.  The single is titled Applause and will be released on August 19, 2013.  ARTPOP itself will be on store shelves November 11, 2013.  The single cover artwork for Applause:

The music video is set to be released the same day as the single.  The preorder for the ATRPOP album and its accompanying free app will be available as well on August 19, 2013.  Rumoured tracks include: Princess Die, Tea, Sex Dreams, G.U.Y. (Girl Under You), Burqa, Ratchet, and Red Flame.  ARTPOP was originally intended to consist of two volumes — one experimental and one commercial — but Lady GaGa has now ditched that idea and is going with the one album.

One day later, on July 29, 2013, Katy Perry announced the name of her senior album, PRISM, via a gold 18-wheeler semi-truck.  The truck also has the album’s release date, October 22, 2013, written on the side.  No single title has been confirmed, but rumours circulating suggest Roar (or Rawr) is the lead single and will be released on August 26, 2013.  No artwork has been released as of yet, but there are some rumoured tracks for PRISM going around the net as well: Roar/Rawr, Edge, Double Rainbow, Bad Photographs, It Takes Two, Unconditional, and Fairytale Love.

More details will be released as Film-social.com receives updates.
