In a new interview with the UK's Capital FM, Katy Perry says she isn't in a hurry to release her next full-length album. The Pop star said that "I’ve got something swirling, but, you know, I think I want to put out some songs first before I give them the full meal. I think we are digesting things in bite size these days and that’s what we can handle. It’s not shade or anything at all like that… but when someone has a 17 or 19 track album and you’re like, ‘I have to take a trip to Mars to listen to your record in full!’ I mean I love you, you’re my favorite dope artist, but like we want bite size."
Discussing her current single "Chained to the Rhythm," Perry said she was writing with Sia and Max Martin after the Presidential election and "I was kind of depressed and, you know, I definitely didn’t want to write a club banger. She added, "I was like, ‘How are we writing a club banger when the world is on fire?’ And it was a nice exercise of writing a song that at first listen is a really fun song, but I guess the more you dive into it, it has a different subtext." She also said that with her new songs, "I'm just striving for more consciousness than ever and I'm calling this era 'purposeful pop.'"
Perry is in the UK currently to perform at tonight's BRIT Awards.
