LADY Gaga has declared a "pop music emergency" and has rush-released her new single after it was leaked online.

The singer's first tune from her new album ARTPOP, entitled Applause, was illegally posted on the internet last week.

Something similiar happened to Katy Perry over the weekend with her new single, Roar.

Gaga was planning to officially release Applause on August 19, but she has decided to push the single's availability forward in light of the circumstances.

"Due to hackers an abundance of low/high quality leaks ... We issue this pop music emergency...monsters spread the word," Gaga tweeted on Monday.
