Katy Perry announces her new single Small Talk

Katy's latest single was co-written by Charlie Puth.

Katy Perry has revealed her next single, called Small Talk.

Katy - who has topped the UK's Official Singles Chart five times - will release the track this Friday (Aug 9). Katy confirmed the new single with a series of 'handwritten' memos on social media.

Update: Small Talk is now out! Listen below: 

Small Talk was co-written with Charlie Puth, Johan Carlsson and Jacob Kasher Hindlin. 

Small Talk is the second in what Katy recently said will a series of stand-alone singles, following the release of Never Really Over, which peaked at Number 12 on the Official Singles Chart.

Katy is unsure about putting out a full album, but said would consider it "if there’s demand for a full body of work." Katy has scored two UK Number 1 albums, while her last studio album Witness peaked at Number 6.

In a recent interview, Katy confirmed that another song Harleys in Hawaii will be released "in the very near future".

Small Talk arrives after a tumultuous few weeks for the American Idol judge, who was sued for copyright infringement over her song Dark Horse. Katy, the song's collaborators and her record label were ordered to pay £2.3 million in damages.

"Never really over" was awful...hope this title will be better...i miss the "old" Katy Perry!! hot and cold being my favourite single....




Why would you want an "old" katy. It would be boring if artists never changed their sound or evolved as a person. That said I do wish she would revist pop-rock like Hot n Cold. It's what made me fall in love with her music.
