Katy Perry to release new album 'Prism' in October
US pop singer reveals album title and release date on giant gold truck
The US pop star announced the name and release date of the album in ostentatious fashion yesterday (July 29) via a giant gold truck with "Katy Perry - Prism - 10-22-13" written on its side driving through the streets of Los Angeles. Fans soon began to spot the vehicle and posted pictures to Twitter. Among the fans to see the truck was fellow pop star Adam Lambert, who posted a picture online and alerted fans to what was happening.
Katy Perry then confirmed that 'Prism' will be her new album. Addressing the pictures circulating online, she tweeted: "Find the #PRISM semi, take a picture and I'll RT you. Don't worry, Los Angeles is just the first stop on the map." 'Prism' will be the US singer's third solo album and follows the 2010 release of 'Teenage Dream'. The hugely popular album included the singles 'California Gurls', 'Firework' and 'Last Friday Night'.
Earlier this year Perry joined The Rolling Stones onstage in Las Vegas. The 'Teenage Dream' singer joined the band during their show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in May for a duet with Mick Jagger on the 'Some Girls' classic 'Beast Of Burden'.
