It’s the moment all you KatyCats have been waiting for. KATY. PERRY. IS. BACK.
That’s right! Katy Perry shocked us all by popping a brand new single online early this morning (Friday 15th July 2016) and we are obsessed already.
We’ve heard rumblings of a new album for quite some time but this is the first clear indication that Katy’s fifth studio album is certainly on the way.
‘Rise’ was written and recorded for this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio and will be used by US network NBC as part of their coverage of the events. But enough talking; get yourself in here and take a listen.
In a statement, Katy said:
“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite. I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world.”
Thank you Katy for blessing us on this glorious day. We <3 you.
