During Thursday’s annual ‘I Create Music’ Expo, Queen of Pop Katy Perry delved into exciting territory that she wasn’t ready for – the initial press discussion of her hotly anticipated third album. Perry, who initially attended the expo to answer questions about her stellar songwriting craft, was later cornered into answering inquiries about her latest round of studio time which officially began last November. Katy reveals that among current collaborators such as Dr. Luke (“I Kissed A Girl”, “California Gurls”, “E.T.”), Greg Wells (“Ur So Gay”, “Not Like The Movies”), Bonnie McKee (“Teenage Dream”, “Wide Awake”), and Max Martin (“Last Friday Night”, “Hot ‘N Cold”), she also confirmed her work with Sia, who most recently helmed Rihanna’s “Diamonds”. The A-list of producers working with Perry is slightly different from previous reports that said the star was working with indie band M83 (of “Midnight City” fame). During the expo, Katy also reveals her not surprising #badtimes with urban label Def Jam and working with the Matrix trio. As far as new music, Katy recalls a recently written song with McKee and UK superstar producer Greg Kurstin entitled “Double Rainbow”, but gives no further insight on the direction of the album. While six months is normally a long time to complete an album – especially for Perry – her devout #katycats know that perfection takes time. Read the official story via Billboard HERE.
