Lady Gaga Debuts Song on Farmville

Born This WayLady Gaga is turning to an unusual method to cultivate her fan base: The pop icon is releasing songs from her new album on a section of online game FarmVille before they can be heard anywhere else.

The singer, known for her outrageous styles and hits such as "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance," will allow singles from "Born This Way" to be heard within a neighboring farm in the game called "GagaVille."
Players have to complete tasks to hear one exclusive new track per day from May 17 to 19. Additional songs that aren't exclusive can be unlocked over the following three days. The album is due to be released on May 23.
It's the first time game-maker Zynga Inc. has received exclusive tracks from artists in a game and the first time it's created a whole farm dedicated to an artist. In December, Zynga partnered with Dr. Dre to release a track from his album "Detox" in the game Mafia Wars.

About 46 million people worldwide play FarmVille every month.
