The singer opens up about future plans
Katy Perry is looking at working on a new album, and she wants it to be an acoustic one.
The star has revealed that she's been inspired to do a stripped down record after a trip to Nashville.
"I've always wanted to make something like an acoustic record" said the singer to The Sun "My favourite record is Patty Griffin's Flaming Red . I discovered it when I was in Nashville."
However Perry has not revealed when she intends to record this new project.
"I definitely want to do a Patty Griffin-esque thing at some point. It's something that I'm really excited about because I know I can do it and I haven't really played that card yet." said the singer.
Perry is soon to start working on her third album, which according to her, will deal with some of the heartbreak she went through when her relationship with ex husband Russell Brand ended.
