The atmospheric synths complement Perry's soaring vocals, while the driving percussion element elevates the song to an emotional powerhouse. Seems like Perry is really pouring her whole self into this album — she's experimenting with new sounds and has most definitely ditched the candy-coated pop that made her the darling of the Top 40 charts. But, she still hasn't lost her tongue-in-cheek sexuality. Just one listen to "Birthday," another leaked track off Prism, and you know she's not talking about a cake from the bakery.
At the rate these tracks are leaking, the entire album will likely surface online by the end of tonight. While you're waiting, preview Perry's next single below.
