Katy Perry Explains Why She's Releasing an Album This Year & Not Waiting for 2021

Katy Perry just released the first single off her upcoming fifth studio album and she’s opening up about her decision to release an album this summer.

The 35-year-old singer just announced that the album is going to be released on August 14 and there’s a good reason why it’s coming out this summer instead of in 2021.

“I have this body of work and there was a question of, do I wait until next year? And I was like, one thing is for certain, I’m having a child this summer,” Katy said in an interview with New Music Daily on Apple Music. “My whole life is about to change and I’m sure I will have a whole new access to different emotions I never had, and will be able to write from, so I’m going to write a whole nother record probably when that happens.”

Katy added, “I just think that this summer people want music, they want to dance. They might want some uplifting, inspirational anthems. And I like being associated with those.”

Make sure to listen to “Daisies,” the first single off the upcoming album!
