katy-perryKaty Perry has confirmed she will be releasing a new album this August.

The songstress, whose relationship with British funnyman Russell Brand has been making headlines, said Teenage Dream would be on shelves on August 30, with new single California Gurls preceding it on June 20.

The track, featuring Snoop Dogg, is a response to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ homage to New York, Empire State Of Mind, with Katy saying: “What about California? What about all the homies, the gin and juice, the swaying palm trees, the sun-kissed skin 24-7 – I decided that we needed to make a response.”

California Gurls is available to listen to from Katyperry.com now.

Katy’s previous album, 2008’s One Of The Boys, nabbed two Grammy nominations, went platinum in nine countries, and spawned the chart-topping singles I Kissed A Girl and Hot N Cold.
