Back to the 90’s! And, I’m not just referring to the first U.S. federal government shutdown in 17 years. Yesterday, pop queen Katy Perry released her second offering from ‘Prism’ — a stunning 90’s-inspired house track that finds Katy adopting the persona (and the faux-gospel inflection) of the great British club divas of yesteryear. It’s a ’80s-/early ’90s-style dance cut that CeCe Peniston or Technotronic might mistake for one of their own.
“Walking on Air” is one of two ‘Prism’ tracks Katy recorded in Stokholm and produced alongside Klas Ahlund, a Swedish songwriter and producer who has teamed with Ke$ha, Madonna, and most notably, former Katy Perry tour-mate Robyn (Ahlund co-wrote most of the Body Talk series).
‘Prism’ is due for release on October 22. In the meantime, give “Walking on Air” a spin below![youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=t4D5egXVqSg]
