The 'Part Of Me' singer says she has already planned everything from the artwork to the tour for her new album.
Katy Perry has vowed not to rush her new album but admits she already knows the exact type of record she wants to make, right down to the album's "artwork, colouring and the tone".
The 'California Gurls' singer has been writing material for her third studio album for the past few months and promises the record is slowly coming along, even admitting she is starting to plan out the accompanying tour in her mind.
"It's a bit of a different game because we have some new [corporate] parents. So I have to respect that," Katy reveals, in the new issue of Billboard. "But I'm also an adult and what I'm not going to do is hurry up to fan, to shoot myself in the foot.
"I need to live so I have something worth singing about, that's always been the case for me."
The 'Firework' star went on to say she "knows" the type of record she wants to record but has yet to enter the recording studio to lay down any tracks for her third album.
"I have lots of songs and ideas, I know exactly the record I want to make next," Katy promised. "I know the artwork, the colouring and the tone, but I'm not in the studio yet.
"I have to let the music take shape first," the singer explained. "I even know what type of tour I'm doing next.
"I'll be very pleased if the vision I have in my head becomes a reality."

Katy also promised not to "try and duplicate what I did last time" on her 2010 album 'Teenage Dream', saying it would be "silly" to try and echo the style and success of the record.
She added: "It's not of any interest for me to try and outdo myself at every corner."
Katy Perry was speaking fresh from picking up her award for Billboard Woman Of The Year this week at a presentation ceremony in New York City.
