Perry announced the single release on Twitter, writing , “Special surprise 4U on iTunes! The amazing Jon Brion & I put a little ACOUSTIC spin on #the1thatgotaway. Hope you like!”
While Perry has already had six number one singles from her Teenage Dream album, the original version of the tune peaked at number 3. The “California Gurls” singer is currently tied with Michael Jackson for the most number one singles from one album and is looking to break the record.
Can this acoustic single give Katy the edge she needs to land the top spot?
