Lady Gaga continues to build anticipation for her ARTPOP lead single “Applause,” this time with a new image teasing lyrics from the upcoming track. The graphic reads: “Give me that thing that I love / Put your hands up, make ’em touch,” confirming that one of Gaga’s recent (and somewhat cryptic) tweets did contain lyrics after all.

“I’ll tell you that it is very fun,” Lady Gaga said of “Applause” to Women’s Wear Daily, the fashion bible that premiered her David Bowie-inspired single artwork. “And that it’s full of happiness, because what I’m saying in the song is essentially is that I live for the applause. I live for the way you cheer and scream for me.”

The song’s intent makes sense: Given how she was forced to cancel her Born This Way Ball tour due to a broken hip, Mother Monster probably craves the attention of her fans more than ever. Check out her “Applause” lyrics teaser below.
