Katy Perry Releases “Dark Horse,” Plans to Put Out “Walking on Air”
Although “Roar” and its video didn’t come out too long ago, Katy Perry hasn’t been holding off in giving fans a preview upcoming release Prism.
A fan poll resulted in “Dark Horse,” a track featuring former Three 6 Mafia rapper Juicy J, being released as a promotional single on September 17. She announced it with a tweet: “Here she is!!! DARK HORSE ft. @therealjuicyj PREORDER PRISM: http://smarturl.it/PRISM ENJOY (and thanks for waiting )”
About this track, which is a bit darker than Perry’s usual fare, she previously said at the MTV VMAs: "It's got me, a pop artist, with a little bit of an urban kind of hip-hop-flavored background soundtrack to it."
Perry’s poll consisted of two songs, with “Walking on Air” being the second. Listeners, however, won’t need to wait until Prism comes out next month to hear it. Instead, Perry revealed on Twitter, the track comes out on September 30.
Nevertheless, Perry told fans in a follow-up statement, neither “Dark Horse” nor “Walking on Air” are official singles; instead, she said, an official follow-up to “Roar” won’t come out until later: “Remember these are NOT singles, just tastes to enjoy! #ROAR is still ROARING & 2nd single from PRISM will not be announced for some time...”
Prism comes out officially on October 18 through Capitol Records. If you haven’t yet heard “Dark Horse,” listen to a preview of the track here:
