Katy Perry's Album "Smile" Gets New Release Date
The release of Katy Perry's new album Smile has been delayed by two weeks.
The ‘Never Worn White’ singer - who is currently expecting her first child with British actor and fiancé Orlando Bloom - was scheduled to release her highly anticipated upcoming record on August 14, but “due to unavoidable production delays” she has now been forced to postpone its release until August 28. The record is the follow-up to her 2017 critically acclaimed LP, “Witness”.
In a post on Instagram showing the music star getting a pie in the face, Perry wrote: “Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face…but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable.
“Due to unavoidable production delays, my album #SMILE will now be released [two] weeks later on August 28 (sic).”
However, the 35-year-old global superstar has also announced new “Smile Sundays” to make up for the delayed album, which will see her chat to her fans about her upcoming record every Sunday until the album is released - or until her baby is born.
She added: “To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat ...whichever comes first ) join me for #SmileSundays! Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things SMILE you’ll see new merch... I’ll play some snippets... maybe we’ll go live together... we’ll def have a good chat!
“Clowns-n-Cats - Thanks for being so flexible in this time... it’s a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait! (sic)”
The setback comes as the talented singer-songwriter has also been forced to postpone her wedding for a third time, most recently due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The ‘Daisies’ singer explained: "You can't plan anymore in 2020 because those plans are always canceled. We just want to deliver a healthy child. Everyone has to take life one week at a time right now."
