Katy Perry – Rise



There’s a new Katy Perry single out and it’s a big ballad called Rise which has been released to support NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympic Games 

“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface,” says the Roar singer about her empowering slow-burner which has been released today via Capitol Records. “I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite.”

“I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”
