Katy Perry Announces Release Of New Album On Twitter
Perry began recording 'Teenage Dream' - her third album - back in October 2009, and called in a few fellow musicians to help her along the way, including Weezer front-man Rivers Cuomo. The first single, 'California Gurls' hit shelves on May 7th 2010, after which Perry told Rolling Stone, "It's been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl's perspective. We took the references of Prince, which is always a great reference, and some of the '90s, almost house music references". The song is said to be a direct response to JAY-Z'S New York City song, 'Empire State of Mind'.
Billboard are reporting that the GRAMMY AWARD winning artist is set to release the third single 'Firework' - from 'Teenage Dream' in October 2010, this follows the release of the album's title track, which peaked at number 5 in the Billboard Hot 100.
