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
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.
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 ?
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
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
I don't think Max Martin is bad at all. He's a very good producer and he can do deep stuff or anything Katy wants. What Katy NEEDS to get rid of is Luke. While I love some of his productions and without him literally half of Katy's career would be gone he's still made for top 40 radio and that's what he specifically writes for. If Katy did a full album with Greg Kurstin, Greg Wells, Max Martin, and a few other producers it'd be amazing, but honestly I'd love if she did an album with one producer. Either way I don't really want a lot more collaborations anymore. I want Katy to write with a few people and I want her to produce with a few people but I don't want like 30 people working on this record.
I didn't say Max Martin is bad, just that he's been around since OOTB and now I think that changing producers would be a good idea.
Btw since Dr Luke got in trouble with Ke$ha I really doubt we will see him on Katy's next album.
The solution to satisfy everyone would be Katy as the one and only writer and producer of the album
