After scoring another #1 hit single with “Roar,” Katy Perry is finally ready to unleash her next single “Unconditionally“! The track has been confirmed as the second official single off her upcoming third studio album Prism, which is scheduled for release on October 22 via Capitol Records. Produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut, “Unconditionally” is a big emotional mid-tempo number that starts off soft before exploding into a vocal showcase as Katy belts the incredibly melodic chorus over booming percussion. “It’s a love song and it’s different from ‘Roar’ — it’s not eighth-notey,” Katy said about the song back in September. “I think it’s a universal love song that everyone’s going to be able to relate to no matter the age, no matter male or female. It’s my favorite song off the record.” While the song isn’t necessarily anything new or particularly interesting (to me at least), it is indeed a sweet song that should have no problems appealing to the Top 40. I can already tell that Katy is going to let Prism ride out for awhile, she isn’t going for the albums obvious singles just yet. What do you guys think?
