Preview Tracks from Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’
Katy Perry is treating fans to a performance at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and now she’s treating them to a preview of ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.’ Snippets of two new tracks and a megamix hit the web!
The first new song clip is from ‘Wide Awake,’ a midtempo ballad letting a jerk know he didn’t get the best of her (think ‘Part Of Me,’ but slower). While Perry insisted ‘Part Of Me’ wasn’t about her ex, Russell Brand — and we believe her, considering it was written and demoed back in 2010 — we’re not sure about ‘Wide Awake.’ Time will tell, but it’s timely. Perry sings, “Falling from cloud nine / Crashing from the high / I’m letting go tonight / I’m falling from cloud nine / I’m wide awake / I’m not losing any sleep / I picked up every piece / And landed on my feet / Don’t need nothin’ to complete myself.” That’s our girl!
The next bit is from ‘Dressing Up,’ an ode to bedroom role play. Perry muses about donning a nurse’s outfit, among other things, in this steamy dance track. Perry is a sultry seductress in this tune, owning her sex appeal but maintaining some of her signature silliness.
The third tidbit is from a megamix of all her No. 1 hits from the original ‘Teenage Dream.’ We get a glimpse of a seamless mashup of ‘California Gurls’ and ‘The One That Got Away.’ ‘Teenage Dream,’ ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)’ and ‘E.T.’ are rumored to be on the full version.
Based on what we’ve heard so far, we can’t wait for our favorite candy-colored starlet’s ‘Complete Confection’ to come out! The hit machine hits shelves and digital retailers on March 27.
