Katy Perry – “Teenage Dream”

Katy Perry has released the second single, the title track from her upcoming album, Teenage Dream. Like her previous, huge, summer hit California Gurls, Teenage Dream is also a Max Martin, Dr. Luke and Benny Blanco collaboration.

Teenage Dream still has a strong beat with an insanely catchy melody which California Gurls has, except it’s less fun but this isn’t a bad thing. It’s an end of the summer song which is perfect for the time of year it’s being released. Katy sings about how someone she fell in love with reminds her of being a teenager. Lyrically, it’s much more serious than California Gurls and the melody is very melancholic to support the lyrics. The lyrics also make a reference to California again in a subtle way. The tempo is almost the same as California Gurls which will make sure Teenage Dream gets played in clubs just as much as the latter.

Katy’s official Youtube channel uploaded a music and lyric video with images from the yet to be released video for Teenage Dream which you can view below:

Teenage Dream is out now in support of the upcoming album of the same name to be released August 22nd.
