Katy Perry unveils trap-flavoured new track 'Dark Horse' featuring Juicy J - listen
'Dark Horse' is the second track to be unveiled from Perry's forthcoming album 'Prism' after her Number One hit 'Roar'
'Dark Horse', which features a rap from Juicy J, is the second song Perry has release from her forthcoming album 'Prism'. 'Dark Horse' is available to download on iTunes now and 'Prism' will follow on October 28.
The album's lead single 'Roar' has spent the last fortnight at Number One on the UK's Official Singles Chart. However, the accompanying video has recently been criticised by Peta. The animal rights organisation claims that the exotic animals used in the promo were likely to have been subjected to abuse, as the company responsible for supplying them has an allegedly questionable track record.
Meanwhile, Perry will play the closing night of this year's iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse on September 30 with support from Icona Pop and Iggy Azalea. The singer got a namecheck from Josh Homme during an earlier iTunes Festival show from Queens Of The Stone Age on September 6.
'Prism' is Perry's follow-up to her 2011 album 'Teenage Dream', which has now sold over 1.1 million copies in the UK after spawning the hit singles 'California Girls', 'Firework', 'Last Friday Night (TGIF)', 'Part Of Me' and 'Teenage Dream'.
