Katy Perry‘s new album Prism dropped today …. a year after the “Unconditionally” singer first began writing new songs.
And although the songstress began the writing process a while ago, she admits it took several months before inspiration really hit her.
“I started [writing] slowly in the fall of last year and then this spring it came out like Niagara Falls,” Katy tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
“I was looking at all the stuff I had written and determining dates back in March,” she adds. “I said, ‘You know what? I think it’s appropriate to come out in the fall.’”
Download Prism on iTunes here. And to catch Katy up close and personal, tune in to the live stream of The iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Katy Perry tonight at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT here. And if you can’t catch the live stream, tune in to The CW Friday night when it re-airs.
