Lady Gaga officially announced the title of her upcoming album, deemed ARTPOP, on Twitter Sunday.

The singer also debuted a new tattoo of the album name on her arm, Tweeting, “New ink, new album.”

Fans are speculating as to what the acronym of the Born This Way follow-up could mean, but Mother Monster has yet to divulge more information – she is already a month ahead of her original plan to announce details in September.

While Gaga has not confirmed many details surrounding the much-anticipated release, she has given clues as to what to expect.

The singer debuted an ARTPOP track, “Princess Die,” live in Australia in June, and has integrated the song into her regular Born This Way Ball set list. Before performing the track at a Perth stop last month, she told fans that her upcoming music will be a departure from her last effort.

“Let’s just say, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity,” she said to the crowd. “And I feel that, on the next album, there’s a lack of maturity, it’s a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility.”

A month later, fans caught a clip of unheard Gaga material, rumored to be a forthcoming single, blasting out of the popstar’s SUV in a New York City parking garage.

Gaga also confirmed to a British television show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, that her good friend Elton John will appear in a duet on ARTPOP.

“I’m already working on my next album,” she said on the show. “And I played him a song that I wrote and he really loved it.”

As if prep for the new album is not enough for the busy singer, Gaga is gearing up to launch her first-ever fragrance, Fame, in September and will play La Chameleón in the upcoming film Machete Kills.

Gaga will continue up her world tour through Europe and South Africa until December.
