Lady Gaga will make a post-hip surgery comeback with a performance at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

The pop singer, who just released details about her upcoming album "ARTPOP," will perform her new single at the ceremony, set for Aug. 25 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The as-yet-untitled track will be released Aug. 19.

Gaga is no stranger to the MTV Video Music Awards. Meat dress, anyone? And she's performed on the annual awards show before, taking on her piano ballad "You and I" and giving a memorable rendition of her hit "Paparazzi."

The New York native has been keeping somewhat of a low-profile ever since undergoing hip surgery in February, surfacing last month to sing the national anthem at New York's Gay Pride festivities. The world will see a lot more Gaga very soon, as she's releasing her new album, "ARTPOP," on Nov. 11 with plenty of Gagalicious activities surrounding its release.

The 27-year-old singer is the first performer announced for the 2013 VMAs bill. Justin Timberlake and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis top the 2013 VMA nods with six nominations each. Bruno Mars is in the running for four awards, and Robin Thicke, Miley Cyrus, Pink and Thirty Seconds to Mars will all compete for three Moonmen each.
