New Lady Gaga single 'Judas' released today
It follows the title track, which posted 1 million paid downloads in five days upon its release in February, accomplishing that feat faster than any previous recording.
“Judas” is landing a few days ahead of a previously announced April 19 release date, presumably to head off pre-release Internet leaks.
A video also is in the pipeline, in which Gaga is said to be taking on the role of Mary Magdalene in this version of the biblical story of the disciple who betrayed Jesus.
The "Born This Way" album is slated for May 23 release.
