Lady Gaga's cover of White Christmas surfaces (+video)


Lady Gaga has an early Christmas present for her Little Monsters - she's releasing a festive-themed EP.

The Born This Way warbler announced on Twitter that she is debuting A Very Gaga Holiday, which fans can get their paws on via digital download.

"I'm so excited to SURPRISE announce my release of a $3.99 holiday EP "A Very Gaga Holiday" on ITunes and Amazon now! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!" she wrote.

Included in the release is Gaga's take on Irving Berlin's festive favourite White Christmas.

Gaga's rendition also includes an extra verse, which she explains halfway through the track.

"So as you can tell, I'm very outgoing and a little bit shy, but I've decided that this song is just too short," she says. "It's such a beautiful Christmas song but it's only one verse, so I added an extra one."

The four-track EP also includes Gaga's take on Nat King Cole classic Orange Colored Sky, and stripped-down, acoustic versions of You And I and The Edge Of Glory.

All the tunes were recorded live during her 90-minute TV special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, which airs in the US on Thursday.

Check out a preview of the show below:
