The pop superstar is halfway into her third album which will also feature Sia, Max Martin and Greg Wells.
Katy Perry has reunited with mega record producer Dr. Luke for her follow-up to her 2010 album "Teenage Dream". The 28-year-old entertainer revealed this yesterday during her appearance at the ASCAP I Create Music Expo, adding that she's halfway finished with her forthcoming new album.
"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," Perry said about her studio album-making process. Her upcoming LP is expected to churn out new hits especially since Dr. Luke gave Perry some of her biggest chart-toppers such as "Teenage Dream", "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)", "E.T.", "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot 'N Cold".
Perry has also signed-up prolific songwriters, Max Martin, Greg Wells, Sia Furler and "California Gurls" collaborator Bonnie McKee for her new project. Perry disclosed, "[Wells] allows me to vomit words. 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."
Although Perry talked about a new song "Double Rainbow", she still raved about "Firework", calling it the most important song she has ever written thus far. She further recounts a performance of the song back in October for a fan with autism, saying it's "the most important performance of my career so far."
