There are some dreams we don’t want to wake up from, and given the success of Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’ we can certainly see why.
Since its 2010 release, the multi-Platinum set has birthed hit after hit, a trajectory the singer is hoping continues with a revised version of the album.
Details after the jump…
Set to hit stores on March 13th, the retooled set -dubbed ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’- will include new tracks. And while the name of the cuts are presently unconfirmed, ‘Dressing Up’ and ‘Part Of Me’ – two new Perry tracks which recently “surfaced” – have been wiped off Youtube in their entirety.
In a weird way, I can’t but revel in the shamelessness of this all. Indeed, it may take milking success to a whole other plateau, but it’s ingenius business. Not only does it provide Perry heightened potential to nab more #1’s from the “same” album, it’ll add more sold units to the LP’s already impressive tally.
That said, all this “milking” of one album surely creates heightened hurdles for its follow-up. I mean, take Michael Jackson, for example. Had MJ not “let go” of ‘Thriller’, would the great LP’s that were ‘Bad’ and ‘Dangerous’ have had the chance to shine on their own accord?
