Lady Gaga attended a news conference for her latest album ‘ARTPOP’ at Roppongi Academy Hills on December 1, 2013 in Tokyo — her seventh visit to Japan.
The singer’s third studio album was released on Nov. 6 by Streamline and Interscope Records and has already reached No. 1 in Japan as well as 93 other countries.
The artist described the new tracks as “a celebration and a poetic musical journey.” Its lead single, ‘Applause,’ was released in August and the second single, ‘Do What U Want,’ in October. The entertainer recently revealed that she will kick off a 2014 world tour.
Gaga was presented Sunday with four life-size dolls resembling her, created using precise anatomical measurements and realistic silicone skin. The state-of-the-art dolls were created by Orient Industry in Tokyo, a company that specializes in synthetic “love dolls.”
By pressing your ear to the chests of the mannequins, Lady G will be able to hear songs and secret message thanks to implanted conduction technology.
Gaga recruited a variety of producers to help engineer ARTPOP: Madeon, Zedd, and longtime collaborators RedOne and DJ White Shadow. It also features guest appearances from R. Kelly, T.I., Twista, and Too Short.
