Katy Perry

(Radio.com) Katy Perry has revealed that she wrote over 40 songs during her hiatus for the spotlight following her busy 2015. Her fans have waited several years for new music, and it's finally here in 2017. During an appearance on Ellen, Perry said the grind of promoting Prism wore her down.

To rewind, Perry played the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2015 and toured until October of that year. Then began seven months of rest and relaxation--until she got down to songwriting for Witness.

"I was tired, I'm human," she explained. "So I took October to June off." "I started writing a record in June of last year," she said. "I wrote over 40 songs. Now I have 15 beautiful songs to represent this story I want to share with the world." Read more here.
