Katy Perry has revealed she’s around halfway through working on her upcoming new album and much-anticipated follow-up to 2010′s Teenage Dream. Better yet, she’s working once again with Swedish songwriter extraordinaire Max Martin.

As CMU report, the pop starlet is currently “taking her time” on the new LP saying that the timeline for its release is entirely her own choice.

But fans will be excited to know that among a list of other names slogging away on the album (Greg Kurstin, Sia…etc), the man behind all of Perry’s lead hits to date (‘I Kissed A Girl’, ‘Hot N Cold’, ‘California Gurls’ and so forth) will accompany the singer along the way once again.

The record’s release date is not yet known, but more on the story when it gets announced.
