Katy Perry Releases her new song “Chained to the Rhythm”
The pop superstar teased her new retro-tinged number through the week and shared the goods overnight, with its lyrics sheet premiering through Genius (see below).
Max Martin and Ali Payami produced the song and, as expected, there’s a guest appearance from Bob Marley’s grandson Skip Marley, who just signed to Island Records and released his own track “Lions”. Aussie hitmaker Sia Furler is a surprise guest vocalist. Perry co-wrote “Chained to the Rhythm” with Max Martin, Sia Furler, Ali Payami and Skip Marley
“Chained to the Rhythm” is built on a bed of warm, slightly-tweaked ’80s keys and has its energies tuned to the dancefloor.
“Chained to the Rhythm” is the first track from Perry’s upcoming fourth album release, and her first single proper in six months. It’s the followup to “Rise,” which synched with NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart
