According to Billboard, Katy Perry told an audience at ASCAP’s I Create Music Expo yesterday that she has written a new song called “Double Rainbow” for her upcoming third studio album. Apparently, Bonnie McKee came straight to the studio after a yoga session and told Katy that she felt like writing a song called “Double Rainbow.” And so they did. Amazing.
Katy also confirmed that she’s working closely with Max Martin and Dr. Luke on the album, as well as with Bonnie McKee, Greg Kurstin, Greg Wells, and, of course, Sia. Unfortunately, she’s only “halfway” through the recording process and doesn’t really feel pressure to finish anytime soon. Bummer, I was hoping for a summer single! Looks like a 4th quarter release is much more likely at this point. Let’s hope that the Icona Pop collaboration rumor turns out to be true! And of course, there’s always the possibility that Katy will be featured on Bonnie McKee’s new album…
I need new Katy and I don’t care who knows it!
