London: Pop diva Lady Gaga`s plans to reveal her `Born This Way` album online for her British fans was ruined after the record leaked just hours before its scheduled web premiere.

The `Poker Face` hitmaker was set to treat her devotees in the UK to a listen to the new album ahead of its official release on May 23 by streaming it through a specially
created microsite for Metro newspaper.

The album was available to listen to in Britain from 7am on Wednesday, but the record had already leaked in its entirety earlier in the week, reported Contactmusic.

However, the leak didn`t stop fans enjoying the album, with many taking to Twitter to praise Gaga`s second studio release.

One fan tweeted, "Lady Gaga didn`t lie when she promised Born This Way would be the album of the decade."
