Rumours are that Katy Perry is entering a dark phase in upcoming Disc PRISM, which kinda scares me as an avid Fan, but if first Single ROAR is any indication of her new sound, my worries are lifted. The Track which surfaced online earlier today is grand, sweeping and anthemic. Yet another perfect Pop Concoction which secretly makes me feel a sense of victory standing by her when several told me she’d be a One-Hit Wonder.
I love the little Homage to The Cranberries in the Bridge. Perry is proud of her ’90s influences and everything about this new Track is a reason to celebrate! “I went from zero to my own Hero”, she sings with absolute deserved entitlement.
Written and produced together with longtime Collaborators Bonnie McKee, Max Martin and Dr. Luke, the Track will be performed live at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn later this month! I don’t know how she’s done it, but Perry officially has trumped Lady Gaga in terms of buzz, as the latter also will be premiering her forthcoming Single also at the Event.
PRISM hits stores October 22, 2013, while ROAR officially will be available on iTunes on Monday here!
