Katy Perry has unveiled her new single ‘Smile’

Katy Perry unveiled her new track ‘Smile’ this week on Friday, July 10 - the title track off her her upcoming album of the same name.

The infectious, life-affirming new single is brimming with gratitude and suggests that setbacks often turn out to be blessings in disguise.

“I wrote this song when I was coming through one of the darkest periods of my life,” says Perry.

“When I listen to it now, it’s a great reminder that I made it through. It’s three minutes of energizing hopefulness.”

Earlier today, the singer-songwriter revealed the album cover, along with exclusive Smile-themed merchandise bundles, available here. Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive ‘Smile’ plus ‘Daisies,’ the Gold-certified ‘Never Really Over’ and ‘Harleys In Hawaii’.

Since its release in May, ‘Daisies’ has amassed more than 125 million combined global streams. It is now top 10 at Hot AC radio. Last week, the enormously talented superstar shared an acoustic version of the song. While in quarantine, she’s won acclaim for the wide variety of performances she has given of ‘Daisies’– including the American Idol season finale, the launch of the 2020 Good Morning America Concert Series and the “Can’t Cancel Pride: Helping LGBTQ+ People in Need” livestream.

Perry also co-headlined the recent Democracy Summer 2020 livestream. The event kicked off a campaign to register 200,000 new voters this summer, led by a coalition that includes Rock the Vote, Voto Latino Foundation, When We All Vote, March For Our Lives and others.

Katy Perry's sixth solo studio album “Smile” is scheduled to be released next month on August 14, 2020, and is the follow-up to her 2017 critically acclaimed record, “Witness”.
