Katy Perry Announces Album Release Date on a Gold Truck

Fans have been waiting impatiently for the follow-up to Katy Perry' s 2010 album Teenage Dream , and they may have just received the release date. 

Found in Los Angeles, a shiny, all-gold truck that is roughly the length of three whole building, has the words "KATY PERRY - PRISM - 10.22.13" emblazoned on the side. That's one way to announce when your new album is dropping.

The stunt is sure to generate a lot of attention for the upcoming album. Katy Perry tweeted to fans following the uploading of the first picture of the Prism truck by Adam Lambert, telling them to take a picture of the truck and tweet it to her, and she would retweet them in return. Touching base with her fans this way will make finding the truck a game, and I'm positive fans will go absolutely nuts to get retweeted by the superstar.

Way back in April, MTV reported that Katy Perry was half-way through making the follow-up album. Some songwriters who collaborated on the upcoming album include Max Martin, Sia, Dr. Luke, Greg Wells, and Bonnie McKee. McKee and Perry co-wrote the songs "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," and "Part of Me." Those songs were all mega-hits for Katy Perry, so it is certain that any song written by this duo on the upcoming album is a surefire hit.

In June, Perry stated that this album would be inspired by her personal life, so her divorce from British comedian Russell Brand may very well be a topic of a few songs. In addition to the songs dealing with her personal life, Perry claims this album is "darker" than her previous releases, and takes a load of inspiration from Madonna.

Prism will be Perry's fourth studio album. Katy Hudson, Katy Perry's self-titled debut album, did not generate much success for the now-pop superstar. It wasn't until 2008's One of the Boys, and the controversial single "I Kissed a Girl," that Perry broke onto the music scene. However, five years later, Perry has generated a loyal following of "KatyKats" who will gobble up anything the singer/songwriter releases. 

I'm excited to see what she puts out to follow-up the widely successful Teenage Dream album, which was one of my biggest guilty pleasures in 2010.
