Katy Perry understandably needed a break after her Prismatic World Tour, but girl, it has been four long years since her last album "Prism" came out and she is finally back.
Perry tells Entertainment Weekly that she wrote nearly 40 songs that she then paired down to the 15, which made her latest album. No title has been released yet, but people are guessing maybe the name "Witness," based on her Met Gala outfit this past week.
"It's really quite brave,” she said of the album. “Sonically, it's fun and dance-y and dark and light. It's all of these things. It definitely is a change.”
More than anything, Perry says it reflects some of the growth and maturity she has gone through in leaving her 20s and entering her 30s. For one thing, she is sober. For another, she is working on her relationships.
