After several online rumors of a re-release, it is finally confirmed and happening. Katy Perry will re-package her sophomore album under Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection this coming March 26th.

The Complete Confection will include the 12-tracks from Teenage Dream, a 7-minute Tommie Sunshine megamix of all six singles released, the official remix versions of ‘E.T.’ featuring Kanye West, and ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)’ with Missy Elliot, the acoustic version of ‘The One That Got Away’, plus a John Brion mix of the latter (not the B.0.B. remix), and three brand new tracks.

The cut and paste remixes seem out of place addition, an EP in the like of The  Fame Monster or Cannibal would’ve suit best for an album that was released nearly two years ago, but not complaining. It may seem like a disappointment, but new Katy Perry music is always welcomed either way.

The first run of Teenage Dream featured cotton candy scent, now the first run of The Complete Confection will feature a limited edition lenticular cover.

Perry just debuted the Dr. Luke produced ‘Part Of Me’ (preceding Confection) last night at the Grammy’s with a powerful performance, that generated wonderful reception, so she may be on track for her next smash, next number one even, because ‘Part Of Me’ is a jam, and the ultimate break-up anthem; easily her most empowering yet.

If this is any indication where Perry is headed with her career, she’s all in check, and destined for even more success.

This is the complete story of Teenage Dream. It was an incredible honor to tie the King of Pop’s Billboard Hot 100 record, but I’m moving forward and had a few things left to get off my chest. So this is the complete special edition of my album for my fans,” states Perry.

Teenage Dream has been a journey, and has cemented Katy as the superstar she has become. Billboard has stated any number ones from Confection won’t count as number one singles off the original album; sounds fair.
