Katy Perry + Richard Marx = Brilliant!
Perry recently put out a call asking for mash-ups of her latest hit, "The One That Got Away," and Richard Marx (a self-proclaimed fan of Katy's) found one on YouTube that combines his cover of the song with the original.
The mash-up, produced by well-known music engineer Matthew Prock, has already racked up over 3,000 views in just a couple of days. Richard recently shared with AOL Music that "I'm not really a 'covers' kind of guy, but I was listening to KP's album in my car and kept playing this song over and over. The production is perfect for Katy, but I also felt there was another approach that would show off the song itself a bit more."
Richard Marx's brand new deluxe album, Stories to Tell, which includes a collection of his greatest hits, acoustic versions and live tracks, is now available in stores everywhere. The release also comes with a DVD of Marx's recent performance at the famed Shepherd's Bush Empire in London. Marx is currently making tour stops across the US, including two dates at Las Vegas' Orleans Casino this weekend.
