Lady Gaga has confirmed that her new album will be called ARTPOP.

The Bad Romance singer recently tweeted a picture of her new tattoo - the word ARTPOP on her arm - along with the message "New album, new ink".

And she has now confirmed that her new inking is the name of her third studio album, the follow-up to last year's Born This Way.

Gaga tweeted: "Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title, *its all in the details* good morning twitter."

The star, who is currently in the middle of her Born This Way Ball world tour, is thought to be releasing the new record next year.
