Katy Perry previews new album Prism at New York event
NEW YORK (AP) - Katy Perry says although she's "older and wiser", she still plans to have fun.
Perry debuted 12 songs from her new album, Prism, to be released on Oct 22, in front of an audience of 100 industry insiders and journalists on Thursday night in New York. The beat-driven album features likable, radio-friendly tracks, much like her multi-hit 2010 effort, Teenage Dream.
The 28-year-old pop star played songs like the '80s-inspired Birthday, which she called "something like Mariah Carey would have put on her first album".
She said Unconditionally was her favourite song and she was proud to have written it. Dark Horse, which features rapper Juicy J, sounds like a Southern rap-techno mash-up.
