Monsters, you seriously didn’t think Katy Perry was going to get away with a leak — of new single “Roar,” no less — without Lady Gaga one-upping her, did you? Whether the snippet contained in this post is legit or not (let’s hope it is, because it sounds pretty amazing), it’s causing a bit of a stir from emotional pop fanatics online tonight.

Below you’ll hear a somewhat short, somewhat pulsating clip of what is purported to be Gaga’s lead ARTPOP single “Applause.” The track isn’t due to be officially released until August 19, ahead of its parent album’s November 11 arrival.

So have at it below. It’s just a taste of what may well be the Lady’s first new material in two-plus years. Still, it’s pretty fantastic, so keep those paws crossed, okay?

NOTE: “Applause” is now available to listen to in full. Hear the song here!
