Katy Perry Teases Two 'Prism' Songs 'Dark Horse' & 'Walking On Air': Listen

Katy Perry fans can now hear snippets of two new songs, "Dark Horse" and "Walking On Air," both from her forthcoming album 'Prism." The two :30 second snippets arrived today (August 24) via MTV.com as MTV and Pepsi have teamed up to allow KatyCats everywhere to vote on which of the two tracks should be released early -- on September 17, a full month before "Prism" arrives on October 22. The winning song -- the track that gets the most tweeted votes using #DarkHorseNow or #WalkingOnAirNow -- will be revealed tomorrow before Perry's scheduled performance of "Roar" at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The teaser of "Dark Horse" showcases Perry's emotive vocals as she sings, "Baby do you dare to do this? / 'cause I'm coming at you like a dark horse" before the tempo kicks into a higher gear and Katy asks, "Are you ready for a perfect storm?"

The half-minute long snippet of "Walking On Air" reveals a high energy rhythm with Perry using the upper part of her range to sing what sounds like a chorus of "I'm walking on air tonight / I'm walking on air."

Katy tweeted this afternoon that "the song chosen will not necessarily be my next single BUT a taste of what my #Prism has in store for u!"

"Roar," Perry's lead "Prism" single, is currently No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart, just behind Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." "Roar" debuted at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart this week.
