M83 offers to write Katy Perry’s next album

The dance producer tweets an offer of his songwriting services

M83 has bizarrely offered to write Katy Perry‘s next album.

The French dance producer, who released his double album ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ last year, wrote on his Facebook page Facebook.com/M83 that he wanted to write Perry’s next album after she said she’d watched his set at Coachella over the weekend.

In case Perry is currently considering making the follow-up to ‘Teenage Dream’ an epic, soundscaped electro record complete with the whispers of a small child, M83, whose real name is Anthony Gonzalez, wrote: “I think I saw Katy Perry dancing on ‘Midnight City’ yesterday night. Katy, let me write your next album:).”


M83 wasn’t the only act that Perry took to Twitter to praise, with the singer describing Radiohead‘s headline set as “spiritual” and adding that she “almost cried” when she saw Tupac’s hologram. Sadly, neither of those artists have offered to help M83 out on her next album as yet.
