Katy Perry announces fifth album and drops new single ‘Daisies’
Katy Perry announced that she is not only giving birth to a baby this summer, but is also releasing a brand new album. Her fifth record since her breakthrough will be released on the 14th of August, but does not have a title or a tracklist yet. We will have to wait and see if the string of singles she released in the past months (‘Never Really Over‘ – ‘Small Talk‘ – ‘Harleys In Hawaii‘ – ‘Never Worn White‘) will be included on the album, but her brand new single ‘Daisies’ definitely will.
With ‘Daisies’, Perry drops her best single, probably since ‘Never Really Over’. This midtempo pop anthem has an undeniable chorus on which she shows some of her finest vocals yet. It is all quite bombastic and dramatic, but it suits the message of the song. Perry wrote it about times in which no one believed in her dreams but herself. “They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me, ’til they cover me in daisies”, she declares over the main hook. An undeniable pop anthem with soaring vocals and encouraging lyrics.
