The 'Firework' singer says her new rerelease marks the end of the 'Teenage Dream' era of her career.
Katy Perry says she is almost ready to "close the book" on her second album 'Teenage Dream'.
The 'California Gurls' singer will launch a rerelease of her sophomore record later this month featuring several new tracks and remixes, and admits she is ready to move on from the album.
"It feels like the record that never ends!" Katy told MTV News. "Obviously I’m going to close this chapter soon.
"I am ready to make a new record and maybe try another approach artistically, and I will close the book on 'Teenage Dream' soon, but [The Complete Confection' just felt really organic," she explained. "I'm doing it mostly for the hardcore fans, because they always love all the extras."
Katy went on to explain that as the tracklist for 'Teenage Dream' had originally been limited to 12 songs, she had several other recordings she was keen to use at a later date.
The 'Teenage Dream' rerelease will include Katy's current single 'Part Of Me', which is currently number one on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as two new tracks including one called 'Just Enough'.
Katy Perry will release 'Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection' on 13th March.
