'Every Day Is A Holiday' hitmaker Katy Perry's been chatting away about her new album and basically she hasn't even bloody started it yet.
"I’m in the research and development phase," she said euphemistically to the New York Times.
"I’ve been going at it for eight or nine years in the spotlight, and then before that there’s that decade of hustle that never gets recognized [she means recognised] but still shows up in your wrinkles. So right now I’m taking a little time. I don’t want to jump on any trends. I just need to evolve."
Once she started talking about it, she couldn't bloody stop: "I do my records in a more traditional way, where the cycle is three years, so that once I start writing them, I know exactly where I’ll be in spring of 2018. That can get a little bit like “Ugh.”"
So what you're saying is that you need a little bit more freedom? Especially when you've been doing it for this long?
"I need a little bit more freedom, especially when I’ve been doing it for this long," she added.
Q42016 would be great, cheers.
