“Due to hackers an abundance of low/high quality leaks ... We issue this pop music emergency...monsters spread the word,” the 27-year-old pop superstar posted Monday on her official Twitter account.

Lady Gaga’s new song is part of her third studio album “Artpop.”

It was supposed to be officially released on August 19, but she was forced to make the new single available already in light of what happened last week.
