Katy Perry Announces She's Delayed Her New Album 'Smile'

Katy Perry has made the announcement that she’s delayed her upcoming album, Smile.

In a new Instagram, which shows her getting a pie in the face, the 35-year-old musician explained the reason behind the delay.

“Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face…but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable,” she wrote, adding that “due to unavoidable production delays, my album #SMILE will now be released ✌🏻weeks later on August 28 ☹️.”

Katy‘s original release date was on August 14. However, there is some good news.

“To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat 🤰🏼…whichever comes first 🙃😬) join me for #SmileSundays!” she added. “Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things 🙂SMILE🙂 you’ll see new merch… I’ll play some snippets… maybe we’ll go live together… we’ll def have a good chat!”

Katy continues with a thank you note for fans, “Clowns-n-Cats – Thanks for being so flexible in this time… it’s a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait! ♥️🤡.”
