Lady Gaga may release her forthcoming album ARTPOP in two volumes.
The “Bad Romance” singer told fans on her Little Monsters website that she is unsure how to package the album.
“I can’t decide how to tracklist it yet,” Gaga wrote. “Sort of thinking that volume one should have all the commercial songs and save the experimental material for volume two.”
“It’s a bit more modern. You never know if radio is ready,” she added.
In additional to CD and digital formats, the album will be available as an interactive smartphone app.
ARTPOP, Gaga’s third LP, is due for release in early 2013.

The 54-year-old star invited Lady Gaga to join her for a performance when Madonna’s MDNA tour reaches Gaga’s hometown of New York.
