Just days after premiering the official music video for her new album’s title track (as we reported here), Katy Perry is serving her faithful fans – affectionately called #KatyCats – yet another taste of a gem found aboard her forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Smile.’
Penned and produced by Johan Carlsson, the saucy cut sees Perry challenge the status quo of society’s view of what women are and can be.
“Is it the way I talk sweet, the way my skin is soft? / Or how I can be a b*tch, and make you keep your fingers crossed? / Is it the way that I praise you, the way that I please you? / Or how fast I change my mind, and get scared that I might leave you?,” she wails on the track.
First unveiled via a gripping live performance (that can be seen here), the recorded version of the tune is now available and can be seen inside:
‘Smile’ (the album) lands on shelves August 28 via Capitol Records.
