Los Angeles - Lady Gaga has previewed a new track from ARTPOP called G.U.Y.

The singer released a snippet of the song - an acronym for Girl Under You - which was co-produced by Zedd, who also worked on the tracks Aura and Donatella from the album.

In the clip, Gaga can be heard saying: "Love me, love me / Please retweet / Let me be the girl under you that makes you cry / I want to be that G.U.Y."

Gaga has previously talked about the song, and its underlying feminist message.

'Something I find strengthening'

She said: "Any kind of feminist has valid views for herself about what it means to be a feminist, but, as a new-age feminist, I would say I quite like the transference of strength I feel by submitting to a man - being under him.

"I actually wrote a song about it on my album, it's called G.U.Y and it stands for Girl Under You. So wearing make-up, smelling delicious and having suckable, kissable, edible things between your limbs is something I find strengthening because I know that when I pick the right guy, I can let him have it.

"Some women feel oppressed by make-up and clothing, and here's to them, they have every right to feel that way as well."

ARTPOP will be released on 11 November.
