Panic At the Disco is a very different band from Panic! At the Disco. Back when they had the extra punctuation, they also sported a more dark(ish), electronic, and  keyboard laden sound. Once they dropped the !, they also decided to move their sound to be cleaner and mainstream. The change has been embraced by fans and hasn’t hurt their record sales or popularity one bit. Check out below one of Panic’s new songs with the new sound and decide if you like it yourself. 

Katy Perry Describes Upcoming “Roller Skating” Music

Katy Perry has kept busy since her first major hit “I Kissed A Girl” hit mainstream airwaves last year. After the success of her album One of the Boys, her fans are itching to get their hands on new music from the raven-hair pop star.

Well, good news for those fans: according to MTV Perry is ready to get back to work. She’s even feeling inspired by some of her newest collaborators for her next project, likening her new vibe to that of fellow VMA-nominated band 3OH!3.”I know that after being on the road for about a year and half, what I’m missing is a little bit of that ‘Starstrukk’ flavor,” she told MTV News on the video set for “Starstrukk,” her new song with 3OH!3.

Her new music will eventually have “that beat, that movement a little bit,” Perry teased.  “I want to make songs that people want to hold hands and roller-skate to.”

When we previously spoke to Perry about her Boys follow-up, she made it clear that she’s going in a new direction. “I definitely want to make a follow-up pop, fun record. I’m not looking to alienate my fans, but I can’t be that grown-up Shirley Temple girl wearing the stupid strawberry in her hair all the time … because I’d kill myself or someone else would for me,” Perry laughed. “So I’m really excited to always be evolving, and changing; with my look, with my music, it keeps me entertained as well.”
