Now, this is what we like to hear!
Most of the latest news about Katy Perry involves her break-up with John Mayer or her recent lawsuit from GHD, but thankfully, today, we've got information about what really matters: her music!
And more specifically, her NEW ALBUM…which the singer announced to be about HALFWAY finished during ASCAP’s I Create Music Expo yesterday!
According to her, she is once again collaborating with many of the producers responsible for the material on Teenage Dream, including Max Martin, Greg Wells, Dr. Luke, Bonnie McKee and Sia!
“When I put myself on a timeline, when I tell the record company when I want to release the album, that’s when the race starts. That’s when I put pressure on myself. [Wells] allows me to vomit words. Not that I can’t find that with other but he just lets me [makes retching sound]. Max and Luke push me the most. As a team we have certain strengths. With Max, it’s melody choices, Luke is production and I’m topline and melody. [Working with Bonnie McKee] is like an emotional abuse session. Bonnie and I argue (like) we’re in the ring fighting for the best lyric. We presented ‘Teenage Dream’ three times (before it was recorded).”
As for gurlfriend's new material?
Apparently, a recently-completed track called Double Rainbow, written along with McKee and Greg Kurstin:
“I came in from a yoga class and said, 'I want to write a song called 'Double Rainbow.' So we have a song called ‘Double Rainbow.’”
This is what we like to hear!
Although, we have to admit, it's going to be pretty tough to top the AH-MAY-ZINGness of the Double Rainbow song already out there!
But if anyone can do it, we're confident it's our beloved KatyKat!
What do U think? Who else is PSYCHED for her new album??
