Katy Perry Returns With New Single “Rise”
Looks like today is going to be a huge day in pop music. Katy Perry takes time off from being dragged into the Taylor Swift / Calvin Harris drama, by releasing some brand new music. “Rise” marks her first release since 2013’s ‘Prism‘ and ties into the Rio Olympics.
“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,” Perry said in a statement. “I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”
