Lady Gaga is back with a bizarre video for her newest single Applause, which she debuted on Good Morning America on Monday.

In the clip, the 27-year-old puts on a show as she dances in several outfits, including some black lingerie and a bodysuit of the same color. While in several scenes the singer wears minimal makeup, in other shots she paints her face with very dramatic colors. She also fixes herself up to resemble a skeleton, as she did in her video for Born This Way in 2011. The strangest moment, however, comes when her head appears on a black swan's body.

During GMA, Gaga explaned that she drew inspiration for the song and video from her devoted fans. 

"We put this clown makeup on my face and as an ode to the jester," she said about the video. "As I was performing on the set, I started to feel really emotional and sad because I hadn't seen my fans for a long time. It's very different performing for a camera than performing for 50,000 people. It feels different, and I truly miss them. So I took my hands and I smudged the makeup down my face like tears, and I began to cry while I was singing, singing, 'I live for the applause.'"

Applause is the first single off Gaga's upcoming third album ARTPOP. In July, the singer announced via Facebook that her new album will be released on Nov. 11. Fans will be able to pre-order her third full-length studio album starting Sept. 1.

"The album ARTPOP musically mirrors Gaga's creative process as she passes through the mediums of each artist she collaborates with, scoring a blueprint of her journey," the post explained.

The record will be Gaga's follow-up to Born This Way, her sophomore album which was released in 2011. Her second album, which features the hits Marry The Night, Born This Way, Judas and The Edge of Glory, went multi-platinum and shot to No. 1 on Billboard.
