LISTEN: Katy Perry Debuts New Song
The song will feature in NBC's coverage of the Rio Olympics.
It's the first music we've heard from the singer since her 2013 album Prism.
The song, titled 'Rise' is an uplifting song that some fans have said has come with perfect timing and that it is "definitely relevant with all thats happening in the world." Katy replied saying "No better time than now."
In a statement to E! News, Perry 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," she added "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."
The song is available to buy on iTunes and it is also streaming on Apple Music.
