Lady Gaga is set to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards at Barclays Center on Aug. 25, where she will unveil the first single from her upcoming “ARTPOP” album.

Gaga is the first announced performer for the ceremony, which is returning to New York for the first time in four years. Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis lead the night with six nominations apiece.

Since hip surgery earlier this year, the publicity savvy Gaga has mostly stayed out of the limelight, aside from being spotted in her custom-built 24K gold wheelchair, and the MTV appearance may mark the launch of her new marketing campaign.
