The part pop star, part-machine image was photographed by fashion shooter Nick Knight who previously shot Gaga for the September 2010 cover of "Vanity Fair" Magazine as well as for the Japanese edition of "Vogue Hommes".
"I don't want to reflect social change," said Knight. "I want to cause social change".
Knight has previously worked with singer David Bowie. Bowie himself, seemingly started the 'morphing' look with his 1974 RCA LP "Diamond Dogs", picturing the rock star lounging around as a non-neutered hound dog.
"Born This Way" will be released May 23, 2011.
