Katy Perry to Release New Tracks on ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’
Finally, some Katy Perry news that isn’t about her divorce! The spectral-haired starlet is gearing up to release a new edition of her megahit ‘Teenage Dream.’ Perry will feature new tracks on ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.’
It’s unclear whether Perry will include brand new songs or simply unreleased, previously recorded tunes. While the new songs on the record have yet to be confirmed, fans speculate that they could be her kiss-off anthem, ‘Part of Me,’ and an ode to bedroom role playing, ‘Dressing Up.’ Both ‘Part of Me’ and ‘Dressing Up’ had previously leaked onto YouTube, but have recently been pulled, leading to expectations of their appearance on the album.
Producer Tricky Stewart announced in October that he was working with Perry on the unreleased songs, including ‘Dressing Up.’ “Katy and I went into [the studio] just to address some issues with records that we had done in the past that didn’t end up going on ‘Teenage Dream,’” Stewart told MTV. “So we are in the process of just listening and freshening up things and getting ready for something special she has going on.”
The re-release will only be the latest in a string of new, reworked and remixed Perry songs. She released a heart wrenching acoustic version of ‘The One That Got Away,’ shortly after a remix of the track with B.o.B hit shelves. Perry previously released a remix of ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)‘ featuring Missy Elliott.
We found a full version of ‘Part of Me’ and a snippet of ‘Dressing Up,’ and they sound great! We’re excited to see what other candy-coated pop confections Perry’s been hiding.
