Water your virtual crops, and listen to Lady Gaga's next hit!

That's the plan, anyway. The 25-year-old pop star is partnering with Zynga's FarmVille application to let users hear tracks from Born This Way six days before the album is released.

From May 17 to May 26, Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta) will become a "neighbor" to 45 million monthly players of FarmVille when "GagaVille" is launched. According to a statement form Clear Channel, this Mother Monster-themed farm will incorporate key themes and storylines of Born This Way.

Players who execute Gaga-themed quests in "GagaVille" will unlock a radio player that enables them to stream songs from the upcoming album exclusively in FarmVille.

The album's official release is May 23.
