Lady Gaga offered fans in London a first listen to seven new songs off of her latest album "ARTPOP" over the weekend.

"ARTPOP" is not scheduled for release until Nov. 11, but Gaga introduced its new tracks as she headlined the iTunes event at London's Roundhouse on Sunday.

The 27-year-old singer debuted songs such "Sex Dreams," "I Wanna Be With You," and a rap song "Jewels & Drugs," which features T.I.

Rounding out the rest of the new songs were "Swine," "ManiCure," and "ARTPOP."

Last week, the "Allejandro" singer took the stage during MTV's 2013 Video Music Awards where she debuted one new track from "ARTPOP." The song, "Applause," was dedicated to her fans, known as little monsters.

Meanwhile, Sunday's performance was Gaga's first solo show since undergoing hip surgery in February and canceling the rest of her Born This Way tour.

The iTunes Festival runs through September and will also see performances by Elton John, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry.

Ahead of finishing "ARTPOP," Gaga conducted a Twitter Q&A on the new album earlier this year.

When asked if her new songs would sound anything like "Dance in the Dark," a track off of her 2009 album "The Fame Monster," Gaga offered a confidant response.

"i have written like 50 songs," posted the singer. "i don't know what will rise to the top. but that's how I wrote the fame/the fame monster."

A Grammy Award-winner, Gaga rose to stardom after her first hit album "The Fame" in 2008. Then, in 2009, "The Fame Monster" also achieved great success.

Pursuing her life-long passion for music, the singer recently addressed her critics in the industry while also discouraging bullying.

"It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make a mockery of their work," said the New York City native during a concert over the summer.

"And that doesn't make me feel good at all," Gaga continued. "That just makes me feel like I'm not being a good human being… I don't even want to fight back because it's more important to me to keep writing music. Because that's really all I care about, is the music."
