Katy Perry is definitely getting her little “Katy-Kats” excited for the release of her new album, Prism. First she gave us the catchy “Roar” and followed it up with releasing “Dark Horse.”
Last week, word on the web was that she would be releasing another new song come midnight Monday which she later did confirm.
At first, the pop star had given her fans a sneak preview of a song titled, “Walking on Air” which was later to be confirmed by the “California Gurl” herself to be the song that would be released at midnight. The song goes in another direction, going for the more club life feel than the poppy “Roar” and “Dark Horse.”
During and interview with MTV, Perry revealed that the song was written after she and a friend went rollerblading in Central Park and took off gliding while listening to house music. “I looked at [my friend] and I said, ‘I have to do a song like that'” she revealed. She also said in the same interview that one of her musical influences for the song was CeCe Peniston’s 1991 hit single, “Finally.”
At the moment, “Walking on Air” is not being shopped around as a single for Prism; it’s nothing more than a promotion track from the album.
Prism, though is scheduled to be released on October 22 through Capitol Records.
