Katy Perry Announces New Album, Premieres New Song “Daisies”
- American singer-songwriter Katy Perry announced her sixth studio album (yet-untitled) will be released on August 14th. It is her first LP in three years.
Form the album, she premiered the first single “Daisies” on May 15th. The accompanying music video was directed by Liza Voloshin.
The track was written by Katy Perry, Jon Bellion, Michael Pollack, Jacob Kasher, Jordan K. Johnson and Stefan Johnson.
Sh said of the song, “I wrote this song just like it’s another anthem for myself. I came out of a pretty dark time on Witness and I’ve been writing a record for two years. I wrote some of it while I was clinically depressed and trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel. And when I’m writing songs like “Firework” or “Roar,” it’s not because I’m feeling hunky dory. It’s literally because I am having really dark thoughts and trying to come out of it. And my soul sends a message to my intellect, to my head. It says, “You’re going to get through it. You’ve gotten through it before. And here’s a nugget of inspiration, how you’re going to do it.” And it becomes a song and “Daisies” was just a nugget of inspiration for me to go, look, I don’t need to change. I will stay true to my past. Maybe that won’t be popular at times, but I will stay consistent with who I am. I will keep pushing myself musically, as a human being to evolve every single day. And I will continue to travel on the road less traveled no matter what people say.”
She continued, “This song has definitely taken on a new meaning in quarantine times. I think it’s been a time to reflect and a time that we realize maybe we took a lot of things for granted and didn’t have the gratitude about certain simple things. And hopefully, when we all get out of this, we will appreciate and be grateful for our freedom. And we will go after life like never before knowing that it can be taken all away.”
