Nobody knows. I don't think Katy even knows what she's planning for her next era.

I love how she always surprises us a little. I can't wait for the next album/Katy era already! I'm kind of hoping for an acoustic album though...  :pinkbow: :strawberry:

She said she wants to leave pop music aside for next album because she has reached the top of what she could do.
From what I can remember she wants to make either an acoustic album or a dance album. Not particularly a fan of dance music but at least I have the time to get used to this idea. And I'm sure Katy would do something great in any music style so I'm not worried^^







Acoustic album tho >>>><

She never said she was gonna leave pop music aside. I don't see the acoustic record coming for awhile. In her Q&A with Mario Lopez during her premiere, she said she has ideas for the next 5 years.

It reminds me how Katy said in another interview, probably last year (?), how she always plans to a certain possible degree 5 years ahead and how that's the only way she can make all this work. I think also that she still has to cement her career by being 'generic' to a degree, and that she's not in a position to serve an acoustic album as the main course at this particular point.
I had a discussion last night where somebody told me she has to invest some of her own money into her projects to have enough of a say in them. That figures to me, and makes the high risk of an acoustic one at this point very unlikely. Katy knows well what she does and runs her business, but doesn't run the multibillion businesses hers depends on. Well, that's how it all looks to me anyway.  ;)

agreed. I think she is 100% aware of what she needs to do and willing to do it. She's a very smart businesswoman, so I think she knows what she is doing even while we don't  ;)

I hate to say it but I really just don't see a full dance album happening. It depends on what type of dance she wants but it sounds like she wants to do a Robin esque WOA type of dance album but I don't think it'll happen anymore. Unless she means EDM. Either way I think that the medium does not lend itself to the lyricism that she's talking about. She said that she plans on writing this whole album based on personal experiences which I'm looking forward to because honestly I think that's what I've been missing most from Katy the past few years. I absolutely love her and I always will but I've listened to her since 2008 and I've just missed and craved that sound of One of the Boys and her unreleased lyrics. They're relatable and that's why I fell in love with Katy besides her catchy melodies. Don't get me wrong Katy is queen of innuendos and party songs but I don't think I can take another album of that and I think Katy realizes that no one can. I think Katy is going to promise that acoustic record for some time more now. While she could go the Lady Gaga route and do it as a side project I don't think Katy has time for that. I think Katy realizes that she needs to stay in pop because she knows she's on top but she needs to reinvent herself. So when people say "she needs to stay generic to some degree." I don't agree, because if she continues with generic pop she's going to burn out her flame and she already started doing that with TIHWD. Pop music CAN be non generic and have deep meaning in it and Katy is evident of that because she does have songs that have deep meaning to them and yet are still poppy. I think she'll go the Taylor Swift route and still do pop music but write about personal relationships and events in her life which I'm looking forward to. For the record though I'm not putting down any of her past music because it's all amazing and although some of it like TIHWD and California Girls could be considered generic the parallel of each album always has really meaningful pop songs and all of her "generic pop" stuff are amazing attempts at authentic bubblegum pop.

I mean 'generic' as in its non evaluating definition and would apply it to the music and its sound only.  BTGOG is a meaningful song, and its sound production on the album is still generic, on purpose. The albums of Adele and Ferras are generic because they're designed for the broad masses of the pop music culture. Joni Mitchell and Pat Metheny's albums are not because they're designed for the market for jazz, folk, etc. An acoustic album of Katy's I understand as her on acoustic guitar, Josh on acoustic bass, and that's not for the pop charts, or generic music market.

I feel like prism was very heavy in personal experience written lyrics. But I guess there were also those songs that they probably wrote thinking it would be a single and then they made it one. like TIHWD or Birthday or Legendary Lovers. I can't see how any of those are very personal lol
but spiritual, it takes two, roar, unconditionally, BTGOG, Ghost-those songs are very personal and meaningful. Of course not the same as one of the boys but in a more mature way, and also they were just set to a pop melody. Take that away and the lyrics are still meaningful.

every time I hear one of the boys you can blatantly tell those songs were written a long time ago, I mean "i walked right into school and caught you staring at me" but shes a full grown adult....obviously it connected to the younger audience and I understand the message, but I dunno its just odd. I feel like with the last two albums we got to grow with her, while since OOTB was such a long work of progress we missed those years. We transitioned from teenage dream cotton candy fairytales to letting the light in realizing our mistakes and owning up to them. I love all the albums and all the songs though, but I guess because of personal experience I feel like I learned a lot from myself by listening to the last two records and seeing how much she has also learned. I related to her more on the last two records than the first one. but sometimes I rely on the OOTB tracks  ;)

I like the more poppy nonsensical songs, but I would also really enjoy a full record of personal experience influenced tracks. Right now it feels like they are just randomly sprinkled in, and the majority of us like those songs the most anyway. oh, and i'm really not interested in a dance record at all lol

Sorry I misstated what I meant.
I meant that she she doesn't want to do the same again (because TD and Prism are pretty similar in term of music style) so no of course she doesn't want to leave pop music forever and try rapping or dubsteping (?) until the end of her career  but she definitely wants to try something new that doesn't sounds like anything she did before. And the fact that she talked about a dance album makes me think that it's what she's planning next (or next-next). She knows that everybody (even outside of the fandom) loved Walking On Air so why not ?

I think she should ditch Max Martin and start writing more on her own again. And I personally wouldn't mind a little bit more Greg Wells & Sia Furler colab ;)
Feel free to disagree but I would really like it if the next album has a bit of a different sound to it.

I completly agree. Enough of Max Martin, like yeah thank you for everything but we need some new sound now  :hithere:
I would also love more work with Sia, Greg Wells and all the swedish people who are on Prism and why not collaborate with Tove Lo and people who brings fresh air to pop music as well ? And this is very personal but I'd die for a Diplo prod, could be wild  :dreamboat:
