We’re exactly one week away from the release of Katy Perry’s Prism and maybe we’re a little biased since we absolutely adore her and all, but this is definitely on our list of “Albums We’re Stoked to Hear” for 2013 – right alongside One Direction's, of course.

To get us prepped and ready for Prism, Katy released a series of radiant and light-filled photos for the album campaign, as well as a super-quick, don’t blink or you’ll miss it album trailer.
