Katy Perry to release new album this year "quarantine or not"
It may be a difficult time for the music industry, but KatyCats are in for a treat as Katy Perry has announced that she will release her new album "quarantine or not" this year.
The superstar has a lot on her plate being pregnant with her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom during the coronavirus pandemic, but that's not going to stop her releasing her follow-up to 2017's Witness.
Speaking during a Facebook Live, she said: “Definitely have to stay creative.
“In California, you know, there’s going to be a lot of rules and ways of doing things – we’re not just going to go back to normal.
"I’m going to put out a record this year, quarantined or not, because we ain’t gonna let no coronavirus stop us from dancing, even if we’re dancing in our homes.”
Perry said the songs "could be helpful and empowering and hopeful and joyful.”
And on her upcoming lead single, 'Daisies', which is out this week, she added: “It’s a song for all of the dreams that you guys have been dreaming about, and all the things you want to achieve.
“Maybe you’ve had a lot of time to reflect.
"I mean, we’ve had a lot of time to reflect and think about possibly what we took for granted in the past and how it will change in the future.
"This song is kind of about doing that, and going and getting your dreams.”
Announcing the track last week, she wrote on Instagram: “The first single from #KP5 is called #DAISIES and she’s coming MAY 15, 2020.
“THE MUSIC MUST GO ON. (sic)"
