Last night at midnight, Katy Perry unleashed her latest single, "Walking On Air." The Nineties-style synth track will have KP fans hitting the dance floor as the singer belts out lyrics describing a transcendent, intense attraction. In an interview with MTV News last week, Perry teased that the next music we'd hear from her would be a "universal love song" that could relate to anyone.
"It's a love song and it's different from 'Roar' — it's not eighth-notey," Perry said. "And I think it's a universal love song that everyone's going to be able to relate to no matter the age, no matter male or female. It's my favorite song off the record."
"Walking On Air" is the third piece of music that fans have heard from Perry's upcoming album, Prism, which is due on October 22. In addition to the first single, "Roar," she also has offered some previews of the Juicy J collaboration "Dark Horse." "Another color from my #PRISM: WALKING ON AIR! Available NOW as party of my #PRISMPREVIEW!," she tweeted on Monday morning.
Meanwhile, Perry is set to close out the month-long iTunes Festival in London tonight.
