Katy Perry Dishes On New ‘Darker’ Music

Katy Perry is ready to change up her sound for her follow up to ‘One Of The Boys’ with her sophomore album releasing later on this year. The ‘Hot N Cold’ singer dished on how she tries to find her own niche in the music scene, and what to expect to hear in 2010.

“You’ve got Lady Gaga, who’s like, from outer space; you’ve got Ke$ha, who’s the beer-drinking, house-party girl; and then you’ve got Rihanna, who’s transforming the urban world into her own outer space,” she explains. “But I feel like you’re missing an Alanis Morissette, 2010. I love how she was a voice for a lot of people who couldn’t explain their feelings. But it’s not like I’m not gonna compete. I love a good dose of healthy competition. It’s not going to be the same thing that they’re doing.”

“Some of the kid mess I’ve grown out of completely,” Perry announces. “I feel like when I explain my transition visually, people understand. I’m taking it out of the Shirley Temple, Betty Boop, Lichtenstein kind of thing. It’s still fun, but it’s a bit darker. It’s not as annoying. Sometimes I feel like a big strawberry with a face on it. If you do something over and over again it’s like Chinese water torture. If it hits your head enough times, you want to die. You have to just evolve.”

Part of Katy’s evolution will include her new album which she describes as “a roller-disco ‘Lovefool’ by the Cardigans meets ‘I Saw the Sign’ by Ace of Base.”

“I think what will be most important is not the club bangers, but the songs that people want to put on the inside of their wedding rings-that lyrics, that inscription they want to use as their lifelong motto.”

Katy Perry’s album is set to be released summer 2010.
