Katy Perry has dropped a brand new single on iTunes this afternoon, called ‘Dark Horse’!
The track has been released as a preview to Katy’s upcoming album ‘Prism’ which comes out on October 22nd, and was voted in by her fans as the next thing she should release.
‘Dark Horse’ features super awesome rapper Juicy J, and is an iTunes exclusive.

This track shows a different side to Katy’s musical palette, with a slow tempo and urban flavour to the instrumentation. You can imagine someone rapping intensely over the beats, before it opens out and builds into the mellow chorus. Unsurprisingly the Juicy J addition gives it a rap track quality!
This doesn’t have the anthemic singalong quality of Roar, but that’s probably why this is just a fan track, not the official 2nd single. It will probably fit perfectly into the soundscape of 'Prism' when you listen to it as a whole.
