Lady Gaga has teased fans with news of her forthcoming album release by posting a cheeky shot featuring her bare bottom on her Twitter.com blog.
The Poker Face hitmaker strips off for the black and white picture, taken by British fashion photographer Nick Knight, and is seen wearing just a jacket with her upcoming album title, Born This Way, spray painted on the back, and her butt in plain view.
Revealing the promo at one minute past midnight on New Year's Day (01Jan11), Gaga wrote on the website, "The song 2 13 11 The record 5 23 11" - suggesting her new single will drop on 13 February (11), followed by the disc on 23 May (11).
And she appeared to treat her devotees to a snippet of the lyrics from a new track, writing, "Don't hide yourself in regret, just love yourself and you're set/I'm on the right track baby, I was Born This Way."
Gaga previously unveiled the title to her next project at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, as she accepted the Video of the Year honour for Bad Romance.
Born This Way will be Gaga's third studio album.
