California may not the “concrete jungle where dreams are made of” — unless of course we’re talking about Los Angeles — but Katy Perry still thinks her hometown deserves a new anthem.

Just like “Empire State of Mind” — the Grammy-winning hit native New Yorkers Jay-Z and Alicia Keys recorded for their beloved Big Apple last year.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Katy reveals that she has put down tracks on a single entitled “Californian Girl” — a response to “Empire State of Mind.”

“It’s so great that ‘Empire State of Mind’ is huge and that everyone has the New York song, but what the f**k? What about LA? What about California? It’s been a minute since we had a California song and especially from a girl’s perspective. We took the references of Prince, which is always a great reference, and some of the ’90s, almost house music references.”

Katy’s third album is expected later this year.
