Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ Details Announced

Feb 9th, 2012 // 9 Comments

A special candy-coated edition of Katy Perry’s 2010 album Teenage Dream will be released on March 27. Called Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, the expanded set is loaded with all sorts of goodies for Katy fans. But can it earn the Grammy nominee her much-sought-after sixth #1 single from Teenage Dream on the Hot 100? And if it does, come on — will it really count, since this is technically a re-tooled version of the album?

Katy’s beefed up set will contain all 12 original Teenage Dream tracks, three new ones, a megamix of Perry’s six previous singles by Tommie Sunshine, the Kanye West version of “E.T.”, the Missy Elliott mix of “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” and the Jon Brion-produced acoustic version of “The One That Got Away”.

“This is the complete story of Teenage Dream. It was an incredible honor to tie the King of Pop’s Billboard Hot 100 record, but I’m moving forward and had a few things left to get off my chest. So this is the complete special edition of my album for my fans,” states Perry in a press release.

Will you be picking up this sticky offering from Russell Brand’s soon-to-be ex, or have you given up on Katy’s sweets?

    Lol her face looks awful

    If she truly loves her fans, she wouldn’t make them buy the same 12 tracks all over again. She would just release the new tracks as an EP.

    • Totally agree with Dorey. Plus we all know that that she really wanted to break that record which is why there are three different versions of “The One That Got Away.” Luckily, Adele and Madonna made excellent singles that are clearly better than Katy’s latest single so it’s only a matter of time before it drops off the top ten of the Hot 100. Thank goodness!

    Billboard has reported that any singles released from “Confection” won’t count towards the tally from “Confection” and not “Teenage Dream”.

    As for having to buy a new album with 12 of the same songs, I’m sure all of the new songs will be available as individual downloads on iTunes and other online music stores.

    i love katy but this would be a lot of extra money to dish out, but it does come out the day i get my license so maybe this will be the first thing i drive and by idk #idhavetohearthenewsongs

    My hope is that the three new tracks will be available to buy individually- or that, if you already own the Teenage Dream album, the new tracks can be bought as a ‘Complete The Album’ supplement like can be often done if you own partial albums on iTunes. To me, this seems like a perfectly acceptable a way to get people who haven’t already bought Teenage Dream to buy the entire album, plus some new bits from Katy. However, I agree that if I’m told I have to buy the whole album again, then I’m gonna be pissed/just download the 3 new songs illegally lol.

    A lot of artists re-release some of their really popular albums; As collector’s items, more or less. I’ll definitely buy it, I’m sure that aside from the songs, there will be other, cool little things involved that you can’t get anywhere else. Maybe some more scents in the packaging? who knows, Katy is too much fun to not do something special with this.

    You guys are bunch of idiots. Don’t judge if you don’t know the story. Katy Perry isn’t going to release a new version of the songs that were on ‘Teenage Dream’, but she is going to release the songs that she wrote for Teenage Dream, but didn’t made the album. That’s where ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ is going to be for.

    just like gaga, she’s overexposed now. oversaturated by her songs on the radio. ugh. take a break.
