Lady Gaga fans, get ready to fire up your torrent clients: BitTorrent Inc. and VICE Media are about to release a BitTorrent bundle that promises to go behind the scenes of Gaga’s latest music video, Do What U Want, featuring R. Kelly and directed by Terry Richardson. BitTorrent announced the collaboration with a blog post Tuesday, which reads in part:
“The Lady Gaga X BitTorrent Bundle features never-before-seen 4K footage documenting the making of Lady Gaga and R. Kelly’s “Do What U Want” music video, directed by Terry Richardson. It also includes an exclusive video interview with Lady Gaga and Richardson, led by VICE Editor-in-Chief Rocco Castoro.”
The bundle is going to be available online in early December.
This is the first manifestation of a new collaboration between BitTorrent Inc. and VICE, which was first announced in October. BitTorrent bundles are essentially promotional download packages, which give artists the option to offer content for free after users have signed up with their email address.
