Ryan Tedder spoke with Official Charts about working with Katy Perry on her new album saying “Her voice sounds better than I’ve ever heard it” and that “Katy is a world class vocalist and I don’t think she gets enough credit for that.”
“I was working with Katy two weeks ago,” explained Ryan. “She’s in a really cool headspace. I’ve only cut one song with her but I’m in love with it. I hope it comes out.
“I haven’t heard much of the album but the writers doing it are two or three of the top writers in the world. I’ve worked with them on other stuff I have coming out for other artists. She’s got a ‘best of’ team assembled and what I’ve heard I’ve been very impressed with.”
Ryan has been involved in several huge pop hits over the past decade; including Beyoncé’s Halo, Ella Henderson’s Ghost and Leona Lewis’s Bleeding Love.
Keeping tight-lipped about his work with Katy, Ryan said that the sound of the unreleased song is something different from Katy and unlike anything she’s put out in previous album cycles. He also had lots of praise for her vocals.
“Her voice sounds better than I’ve ever heard it,” Ryan elaborated. “You forget how good a singer Katy Perry is. Katy is a world class vocalist and I don’t think she gets enough credit for that.”
