Katy Perry to Release Deluxe “Teenage Dream” Edition in March
Teenage Dream,” Katy Perry’s sophomore album which spawned a record-tying five No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, will be rereleased as a special edition on March 27. “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection” will feature three new songs, as well as four re-workings of her “Dream” hits, along with the entirety of the original album.
“Confection” will include the Kanye West-assisted version of Perry’s single “E.T.,” the remix of “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” featuring Missy Elliott, a Jon Brion-produced acoustic version of “The One That Got Away,” and a 7-minute Tommie Sunshine mega-mix of the album’s six singles. The three new songs do not yet have announced titles, although two Perry tracks, “Dressing Up” and “Part of Me,” surfaced online last month before being hastily removed.
“This is the complete story of ‘Teenage Dream,’” says Perry. “This is the complete special edition of my album for my fans.”
(Perry and Jackson will remain tied for the most Hot 100 toppers from any album regardless of the performance of any singles from “Confection.” Should any song released from “Confection” reach No. 1, it would count as a Hot 100 No. 1 from “Confection” and not “Dream”).
