Lady Gaga Previews New Rock-Pop Single, ‘Swine’
Leave it to Lady Gaga to sing about pigs.
In a new rehearsal video, the singer gives fans a preview of her single “Swine,” the latest off her hotly-anticipated ARTPOP album, due out Nov. 11. Unlike the dance-pop feel of her first single “Applause,” Gaga’s new song gets into a rock-heavy groove.
The teaser shows Gaga seated at a keyboard — and playing the drums — as she belts out:
“I know you want me/ You’re just a pig in a human’s body … Squealer, squealer, squeal out!/ You’re so disgusting/ You’re just a pig inside/ Swine.”
The singer also tweeted other lyrics from the tune:
Maybe I should have a little more just to stay out of my mind? Cause its when I’m not thinkin’ with you that I act like a Swine! #Sept1

The one-minute clip is just a taste of what Gaga has in store for her headline appearance on Monday at London’s Roundhouse as part of the month-long iTunes Festival.
She shared the track snippet along with a predictably provocative photo of herself posing with someone wearing a metal pig gas mask along with the message, “REHEARSAL PIC #SWINEFEST #GETREADYTOSQUEAL.”
