On her new album, Katy Perry says that although she's "older and wiser," she still plans to have fun.
The 28-year-old pop star debuted 12 songs from "Prism" in front of an audience of 100 industry insiders and journalists Thursday night in New York. The beat-driven album features likable, radio-friendly tracks, much like her multi-hit 2010 effort, "Teenage Dream."
Perry 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 favorite song and she was "proud to have written" it.
"Prism," due out Oct. 22, features producers Dr. Luke, Klas Ahlund, Sia, Bloodshy and Greg Kurstin. Her first single, "Roar," bumped Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" from the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week.
