Katy Perry’s New Era

The new VIP Mix of “When I’m Gone” comes just in time for American Idol’s Season 20 premiere. Perry has been a judge on the show for five years. Since her time on the show the singer only released one album. Smile was released in 2020 and wasn’t as successful as Perry’s previous albums.

Now that Perry has gone back to her iconic black hair look, fans are anticipating a new album release from the singer. The Idol judge also hinted that she has more plans for dance hits this year. For now fans can revisit Perry’s glory days by attending her Play Las Vegas residency show.
