While Lady Gaga’s new album “ARTPOP” is coming out in a few weeks, a song from the album has leaked online.

The up-tempo EDM/pop track “Swine” is about the hardships and strife that Gaga had to endure on her rise to the top.

She also talks about a man who is a “pig inside a human body.” She, DJ White Shadow and Zedd created a dirty beat for the song for a dirty human being.

The album hits digital and physical stores on November 11 and is led by the hit single “Applause” and the second single, a duet with R&B singer R. Kelly entitled “Do What U Want.” Other tracks from the album are the similarly styled EDM song “Aura” and “Gypsy.”

Gaga has also announced that she plans to debut a song from the album with every country that she visits, hoping to enjoy the same amount of success that her rival Katy Perry has had with her new album, "Prism."

Gaga is currently making her way around Europe as part of a promotional campaign.

Another promotional single that has been announced, "Venus," will be released on Sunday, October 27, and another one will be released on November 4.

The chorus rings through electro-house like beats: I know, I know, I know, I know you want me/You're just a pig inside a human body/Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you're so disgusting!/You're just a pig inside...swine. Gaga had performed the song at the iTunes Festival in London on the first of September.

"ARTPOP" is Gaga's third album, following her past two releases, "The Fame" and "Born This Way."

I listened to the track and found it really club-friendly, raw and animalistic. Judge for yourself by listening to "Swine" here:
