Katy Perry is set to start work on her fourth studio album this fall.
Katy Perry is refusing to slow down, revealing in an interview with USA Today that she plans on recording her fourth (I guess she counts her pre-fame Christian album) studio album in the fall. As OMFG Music revealed earlier this year, Katy Perry will not be able to work with Dr. Luke on her next album; his contract does not allow him to work with artists outside of his label (from Billboard: “Sony also locked down Dr. Luke’s production services exclusively for five years, meaning he’ll no longer be able to work with Perry or other artists outside of the Sony system.”). Will Katy be able to reconquer to pop world without the help of her trusty and reliable sidekick in 2013?
Edit: Supposedly (according to @StreetTeamCeli, who works for Capitol, “Katy can still work with [Dr. Luke]”), Dr. Luke is able to work with artists outside of his contract, so Katy may be able to reunite with Dr. Luke on her next LP. Either way, in my opinion, Katy Perry needs to remove herself from Dr. Luke and venture out into something more experimental and edgy.
