Weezer's Rivers Cuomo has said that he is to collaborate with Katy Perry.

The lead singer of the Los Angeles cult rock band revealed he's set to meet the I Kissed A Girl singer in order to write new material for her forthcoming second album.

During an interview with music site Buzznet he said: "We're writing together next week. Can't wait."

Meanwhile, Weezer's seventh studio album Raditude is released on 2 November.

In July Perry said she wanted to ensure the follow up to her debut album will have a more grown up sound.

She said: "I'm not trying to alienate my fans necessarily but One Of The Boys was written from 17 to 23 and now I'm 24 so my perspective on life has changed."
