A lot of famous performers are set to release long awaited new albums in 2017. Out of all of them, Katy Perry may be the most looked forward to. Since she was supposed to release a new album in 2016, Katy Perry’s fans are eager to get their latest fix of the pop princess’ new song offerings.

As 2016 winds down, music industry aficionados and fans are gearing up for 2017. This year, many artists are set to release new albums, with The Shins, Lorde, Fergie, Erykah Badu, Ryan Adams and The Flaming Lips among them. But one of the most anticipated is Katy Perry’s new album! For fans, it’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 4 years since Katy Perry released a new album. Since her 2013 album Prism yielded many hits, including singles like “Roar” and “California Girls”, Perry kept herself busy working on film projects such as The Smurfs 2, Zoolander 2. She also appeared at the highly rated Super Bowl XLIX Pepsi halftime show and she seemed to continually stay in the spotlight. But now, the anticipation of Katy Perry’s new album 2017 is higher than ever before.

Ever since her arrival on the music scene back in the 2000’s, Katy Perry’s music hasn’t been easy to define, with a mix of pop, R&B and some acoustic tunes all presented together. No one is sure what to expect with any new Katy Perry releases, especially since Perry has kept quiet on news of any new music. Many saw “Rise” (her song for the 2016 Summer Olympics), as a precursor to what to expect sound-wise from the Katy Perry’s new songs 2017. But Perry confessed that the song was a standalone recording for the summer games and she hasn’t further commented on anything in relation to her new material since.

Recently, she’s shared sound bites of her new music via social media on Snapchat, while providing some updates from her studio sessions via her Twitter feed. Clearly the Katy Perry upcoming album 2017 is a labor of love for the performer and not something she’s keen to release until she’s satisfied with it.
