Katy Perry is ready to switch things up with her forthcoming fourth studio album.


Katy Perry has plans to push boundaries with her forthcoming fourth studio album.

Perry is making the rounds to promote her Olympics theme song “Rise,” including a new radio interview with Ryan Seacrest today (August 18) which she says came about “serendipitously,” but naturally she can’t evade the questions about her next record.

“We’re in the thick of it and we’re doing a lot of experimenting,” she revealed. “I’m just taking some chances. I’m just having a lot of fun, but experimenting and trying different producers, and different collaborators, and different styles. I’m not rushing.”

When pushed for a release date, Perry remained tight-lipped, however it’s rumored the “Roar” singer’s fourth studio album could drop as soon as October.

“I’ve got some timelines in my head. But you hear about people going, ‘don’t take too much time.’ And I’m like listen, listen. Let me tell you one thing: music is all that matters. If the music is good, everybody forgets about the time that you took to make it,” adding she puts in 110% into everything she does and is “confident if I stay vulnerable and authentic with myself that the music that comes out of me will continue to connect.”
