On Friday, Katy Perry released her new song ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ and debuted the lyric video along with it. The video currently has 1.4 million views and the number still continues to grow. ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ is Perry’s first release in six months since her “Rise” album. This new song is said to be the first track of Perry’s upcoming album in which the release date has not been given.
The lyric video is quite unique compared to other artists’. The opening scene shows the inside of a dollhouse. Everything inside the house is proportioned to the miniature size of the dollhouse itself. A hand is introduced to the story and is seen preparing mini portions of food such as tiny sized burgers and little plates of spaghetti. The focus then shifts from the small kitchen to a mini living room area where a hamster character is introduced. The furry friend is watching another hamster run in a wheel on a television. By the end of the lyric video, the hamster is seen eating all the miniature food the mysterious hand prepared.
Perry has been teasing her fans with her album release by posting subtle hints on Instagram about what’s currently in the making for the new album. So far, posts include a billboard of Perry’s face that displays the date February 10, as well as a video of a woman with her foot chained to a disco ball.
Fans are excited to see what Katy Perry brings to 2017. Perry has been silent for too long, we want to hear her ‘Roar’ once again!
