Katy Perry Releases Surprise ‘Cosmic Energy’ EP

Katy Perry dropped a surprise EP, Cosmic Energy, just in time for a rare celestial event.

On Friday (December 18), the American Idol judge dropped the EP without any notice. "Giving u [sic] some Cosmic Energy ahead of Monday’s Great Conjunction," she tweeted. The EP artwork features Perry as a space goddess.

The EP does not feature any new songs, however, it does feature all of her space-themed tracks that make for a perfect soundtrack for any solar event. "Not the End of the World," "Wide Awake" and "E.T." are just some of her hits on the record.

Perry's tweet referenced The Great Conjunction, which will happen on Monday (December 21). The event is the moment when Saturn and Jupiter will be extremely close together. From Earth, it will seem as though the planets are passing one another and it is also known as The Star of Bethlehem. The last moment this happened was back in 1623 and it won't happen again until 2080.

The surprise EP follows Perry's new look. On December 14, she debuted her new hairdo which is reminiscent of her One of the Boys and Teenage Dream eras. She shared a photo to Instagram that showed off her black long hair with bangs.
