Katy Perry’s Next Single To Be “Wide Awake”

Well, looks like we were wrong with our prediction that “Dressin’ Up” would be Katy Perry‘s next single off Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. Instead, the singer has opted for the slower-paced “Wide Awake”, a Dr. Luke and Cirkut co-production that was penned by Perry, Luke, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee and Henry Walter. It’s a bittersweet pop jam that finds Katy lamenting, “I wish I knew then what I know now, wouldn’t dive in, wouldn’t bow down.” Like “Part Of Me”, the lyrics seem timely, given the singer’s pending divorce from Russell Brand. Then again, who really knows when “Wide Awake” was written? Are you happy with the choice of this for a single over “Dressin’ Up”?
