Katy Perry "warns" men not to fall in love with her on her new track 'Dark Horse' which was voted by fans to have an early release ahead of her fourthcoming studio album 'Prism'.

The 'Roar' singer said the hip-hop inspired pop track, featuring rapper Juicy J carries "witchy and dark" themes after fans chose the song over 'Walking on Air' to have an early release via Twitter last week.

The single will be released in full on September 17, ahead of her fourth studio album 'Prism'.

After her 'roaring' performance under the Brooklyn Bridge to close out the 2013 VMA's, she gave her fans a taste of what's to come on her album, and has now revealed what we can expect from the new song.

''It's kind of a juxtaposition. It's got me, a pop artist, with a little bit of an urban kind of hip-hop-flavoured background soundtrack to it, and the lyrics are kind of witchy and dark, as if I was a witch warning this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do know I'm going to be your last.''

The 28-year-old singer-songwriter - who is currently dating musician John Mayer - collaborated with producers Dr. Luke and Max Martin, while she wrote the lyrics with her friend Sarah Hudson in her hometown of Santa Barbara, California.

As for 'Walking on Air', fans will have to wait until Prism's release on October 22 to hear the song in full, however the star did divulge that the high-energy track came about in an unusual way.

It all started when she and a friend were strolling in Central Park and she saw a group of people roller-skating to deep house music. "I looked at her and I said, 'I have to do a song like that,' " she said of the song, which she said she is using to channel dance diva CeCe Peniston's 1991 hit single, "Finally." "I was like I really want to bring that authentic 90's deep house song styling back."
