AMP MUsic Minute: Nicki Minaj Pushes Back Album, J.Lo And Marc Anthony Reunite For TV Show, Katy Perry Re-Releasing ‘Teenage Dream’ Album (page 3)
[photogallerylink id=135739 align=right]It’s pretty clear that of the three albums [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm] has made so far, she has an apparent favorite. You guessed it, her 2010 release Teenage Dream. So far the album has an astounding five No. 1 singles: “California Gurls,” “Firework,” “Last Friday Night,” ”E.T.” and the title track “Teenage Dream.” With her sixth single from the album creeping up from No. 3, she stands to break [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]‘s record for most No. 1 singles from an album.
So what more could Katy want out of this album? Who knows? But she is still re-releasing it anyway. After talking with her producer awhile back, most people thought Katy had gone back in the studio to work on the rejected tracks for her new album, turns out it was just the redux, with all the tracks that didn’t make the first cut.
On March 13th you can pick up Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. While little else is known about the songs that never were, her producer Tricky Stewart did let us in on some details of the upcoming project.
“Katy and I went into [the studio] just to address some issues with records that we had done in the past that didn’t end up going on Teenage Dream,” he said “So we are in the process of just listening and freshening up things and getting ready for something special she has going on.”
He specifically talked about one track he felt Katy was really excited to release to the public. “This song is really special. It’s called ‘Dressing Up,’ so it’s going to be a big record, I think,” he said. “It definitely fits. It’s right there in what her sensibilities are as a musician and a songwriter. She doesn’t change much. She has a very keen musical taste. It’ll be really good.”
Well no duh! Katy is making it, so we already know it’s going to “be really good.” As for guest appearances and the track listing, we got nothing. But as soon as we know, we’ll clue you in.
This is all very exciting news, perhaps this is another way Katy is working on moving on from her old flame, Russell Brand.
