Lindsay Lohan's new best friend Lady Gaga has revealed that her next album will be released in the year 2013, providing the apo­ca­lypse doesn't actually happen this December.

'Taking to' LittleMonsters.com (because Twitter is a bit 2011), the 'Don't Give Up (feat The Midway State)' hitmaker told fans that they could expect to see the follow-up to 'Born This Way' in stores "before Spring", which gen­er­ously gives everyone else about six months to finish whatever they're doing and go on hiatus, doesn't it.

There's due to be an announce­ment of some kind in September so we'll probably learn a bit more then.
