Katy Perry Has Released A Single For The 2016 Rio Olympics

Posted at July 15th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Katy Perry has released a new track for the 2016 Rio Olympics, her first single in two years. She released “Rise” on iTunes and Apple Music, and it’s an uplifting track with some electronic influences.

“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. 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,” the Grammy nominee said in a statement. “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 honoured that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”

Check out “Rise” on iTunes and Apple Music.
