Zynga, the world’s largest social game developer with more than 250 million monthly active players, and Lady Gaga, Grammy award-winning artist who has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, have teamed up to give fans a first listen to Lady Gaga’s music from her new album before it hits stores, and to connect with the pop icon like never before.

GagaVille is a neighboring farm in FarmVille, inspired by Lady Gaga’s new album “Born This Way” where players get exclusive access to songs before the album is released to the world on May 23.

Beginning today, if players play the special Gaga word of the day on the free version of Words With Friends, they will be entered to win prizes, including tickets to a concert on Lady Gaga’s next tour and a signed copy of “Born this Way.”

Players who purchase $25 Zynga Game Cards through Best Buy stores and online (US and Canada) through June 11 get a free download of the full “Born This Way” album with exclusive bonus tracks, a limited edition virtual unicorn and a chance to win a day “On the Set with Gaga,” where seven lucky little monsters will win a day on the set of Lady Gaga’s next music video shoot.
