Katy Perry showcases acoustic guitar skills
Katy Perry is to demonstrate her acoustic guitar playing on an upcoming live album and DVD.
The singer-songwriter performed an unplugged set for MTV in New York during the summer, playing acoustic versions of hits including I Kissed A Girl and Waking Up In Vegas.
A previously unheard original composition entitled Brick By Brick was also showcased at the gig, along with material from her debut album One of the Boys.
The acoustic guitar performances will be issued next month on a CD and DVD called MTV: Unplugged.
This will also feature a cover version of the Fountains of Wayne song Hackensack.
Perry joins a long line of artists who have picked up an acoustic guitar to perform for MTV, including Nirvana, Eric Clapton and Paul McCartney.
The singer has been in the news recently after it emerged that she has begun dating comedian, TV personality and occasional actor Russell Brand.Posted on 14 Oct 2009 13:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
