On Sunday night, Perry took to her Twitter account to let fans know that she's working with super-producers Dr. Luke and Max Martin, who produced two of her biggest hits, "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot n Cold."
It's not known if the good Doctor and Martin will be producing Perry's new album or simply writing songs with her (a rep for her label, Capitol Records, had not responded to MTV News' request for comment at press time), but regardless, everyone seems pretty pumped. "YES!!!! She is SOOOO good!!! Starting @katyperry record 2 tomorrow!!!" Luke tweeted enthusiastically on Sunday. "Mr. Gottwald and Mr. Martin at your service!!! FUN!!!"
Perry has already written songs with the likes of Tricky Stewart and Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo for the follow-up to her One of the Boys album, and while there's no firm release date for the disc just yet, she seems determined to take her time with it. As she told MTV News last month, she realizes that this album presents a unique opportunity.
"I know that I really want to make a record that I can never make again," she said. "I didn't think I had it in me to get to this capacity, so what do I have to go to the next level, you know? I'm really encouraged, and nobody's really stopping me or telling me what to do or say. ... I'm just kind of letting it all come out."
