The 'Part Of Me' star is allegedly aiming to return with a brand new album by summer 2013.
Katy Perry has reported reunited with two of her favourite songwriters to begin working on the follow-up to her 2010 hit second album 'Teenage Dream'.
'Wide Awake' singer Katy is said to have started working with both Canadian producer Greg Wells and US songwriter Bonnie McKee on new material for her upcoming third studio album, both of whom she has written with in the past.
Gramm nominated producer Greg Wells helped write some of Katy's old album tracks like 'Not Like The Movies' and 'Ur So Gay', while award-winning songwriter Bonnie was responsible for helping Katy pen some of her biggest hits including 'California Gurls' and 'Teenage Dream'.
According to Josepvinaixa, Katy has been in touch with the two songwriters and is aiming for a summer 2013 release for her next album, after taking much of this year so far off to relax after her mammoth 'California Dreams' world tour and promotional schedule.

Earlier this week Katy was spotted out in Los Angeles with US singer John Mayer, sparking rumours the two are still a romantic item, and they were forced to make an awkward exit from a LA restaurant this week after Katy's ex-husband Russell Brand arrived at the same dinner spot.
Katy Perry's brand new third album is tentatively expected to be released around summer next year.
