As I'm unable to read the page - is this something official?

No. (But there were exclusive "connections" in the process as there r vocals we havent heard.

My browser automatically translates websites, lol. I love it...
I'm not sure about those, they could be new and added. The track sounds extremely raw, I'm in two minds about it.
I just heard it again and noticed the same as I did the first time: at around 3:40 over the next few seconds there is some really rotten sound engineering, it's a complete 'ouch' moment in the mix.

I dont understand what you mean. Unless you think the "new" vocals are just intelligently edited from old ones to make new?

However, there are definitely a capella, alternate vocals, ect of songs.... in possession of some ppl. :) It happens...
A Capella is the singing of humans without the accompaniment of any instruments. I'm not sure what you mean to say either, but, put simply, I just think Katy is wonderful on any track they used here - and the mix they made of it is atrocious. Like I said, raw, as if not even edited properly. The background vocals are not even balanced in relation to the foreground.


Me and my new ADMIRA from Spain are gonna be one damn firework.
I love her unconditionally.

Okay, so. You and I are not on the same page. lol

Did you catch that this is not official? It's not suppose to be on that much of a "professional" level. It's suppose to be "raw." It's basically a "fan-made" remix BUT they had exclusive vocals of Katy to add in. Quite possibly a Capella (yes, I know what that is which is why I chose to use the word).

When I said "definitely a Capella, alternate vocals, ect. of songs...." that was in general, not specific to this edit. People out there have legit a Capella Katy vocals, songs with alternate vocal style, ect. The person that made this specific TOTGA... had some of that of TOTGA. So, together with the old... and new... made this lovely creation, that is not official, not professionally done, but done to the best of their abilities and I truly commend the work. :)

Oh  I understand somebody had some odd voice recording of Katy's, I just don't find that so interesting. I like a good live recording much better.

It's a technical detail. The vocals drowning in the instrumentals at some point.

My guess is he has access to a label's audio, or he stripped and layered the vocals. Especially since there's parts where it's just the harmony instead of the lead vocal.

Well, I listened to it again, on a bigger speaker, and it sounds to me more like a patchwork of several recording sessions; there is one place where Katy's voice abruptly changes its color totally and then goes back to what it was before, definitely very rough cut and paste of accumulated material. And from 3:35 or so it falls apart completely. The tracks just don't go together at all.

Finally listened to this version. It's really nice and I just love how pure Katy's vocals sound in these piano versions that this guy has been making lately, which also includes Dark Horse and Choose Your Battles.

Like TheMouse says they do have technical issues, especially TOTGA, but I enjoy them for what they are and to me they're beautiful.
Never grow up!
