Katy Perry Eyes Power Ballad 'Unconditionally' As Next Single

Revealing her next single is just one of the new revelations of what to expect when Prism is released on October 22. According to Billboard, the album is packed with autobiographical references to her life between this record and 2010 studio effort, Teenage Dream.

"That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point," she continued in the aforementioned Billboard cover story. more.
