Katy Perry releaes a new song, called ‘Deja Vu’.
Perry has preceded her fifth album with lead single ‘Chained To The Rhythm’, which she performed at both the BRITs and the Grammys.
Having shared a snippet of a politically-charged song recently, Perry has now teased a new one which includes the lyrics: “Because every day’s a sign / Definition of insane / I think we’re running on a loop / Deja vu”. Listen beneath.
Perry’s fifth album is expected for release in the summer.
Katy’s performance at the BRITs generated a viral moment after one of her backing dancers – dressed in a house costume – fell off the stage. Watch the much-shared clip below
Ahead of her performance at the Grammys, Perry caused controversy after she made a joke about Britney Spears’ breakdown in 2007.
The singer answered a question from radio host Ryan Seacrest about taking a break between albums by saying the time off was “fantastic. I haven’t shaved my head yet.”
Perry and actor Orlando Bloom recently announced their split. The pair began their relationship in January 2016, and were rumoured to be close to getting engaged last summer.
“Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” a statement read
Things have gotten a little darker for this California gurl. Katy Perry’s teased her new single “KP4,” and it continues the theme that things aren’t as they should be. Like “Chained To The Rhythm,” this new song, believed to be off Perry’s upcoming untitled fourth album that has no official release date as of yet, is dealing with a bad case of deja vu. “‘Cause every day is the same, definition of insane,” Perry sings on the rather spooky track. “I think we’re running on a loop. Deja vu.” Like “Chained To The Rhythm,” this new track is something different for the pop star, who is known more for her sunny bi-partisan empowerment anthems rather than politically charged minor key pop songs. Once again, Perry is asking fans to ditch apathy and stay woke. With her new batch of songs it’s clear the singer has seen some things, and she’s ready to take off her rose-colored glasses. And she suggests you do, too.
For once, Perry’s music seems to line up with her own point of view, which she often shared in interviews but rarely in the studio. Her journey to “purposeful pop,” as she is calling it, has been a long time coming, as has her journey to the dark side.
From the sounds of her new stuff, Perry is finally making a personal album. When you hear her new music, you get the feeling that she’s come to a point in her career where she finally has the confidence to do what she wants. This is really how she do, so you better get used to it.
