Lady Gaga releases 'Venus'

Lady Gaga's has released her latest single "Venus."  

On Sunday at midnight, the pop star made the new track from ARTPOP available for download on iTunes.  She debuted it in full on Vevo earlier that day, along with the cover art of a large scorpion crawling on her face. 

"Venus" was originally intended to be the second single off the album following "Applause."  But last week Gaga decided to release her R. Kelly collaboration "Do What U Want" as a single as well. 

The singer seems to be channeling some of the strangeness from her earlier years in "Venus."  Towards the end of the space-themed track, Gaga dedicates a short couplet to each of the planets in the solar system.  

ARTPOP drops on November 11th.
