Katy Perry Returns With Socially Charged New Single ‘Chained To The Rhythm’
‘Dance, dance, dance to the distortion“
It’s been three years since Katy Perry released ‘Prism’, and if you’ve paid attention to how long she takes in between albums you’ll know that it’s due time for her to take over pop once again.
With just two days before the GRAMMYs, Kathryn Perry ushers in a new era with her disco-tinged, Max Martin produced new single ‘Chained To The Rhythm‘.
The lead off her soon to be released fourth studio album, the Sia-penned single finds Katy bridgingthe gap between social awareness and the cheeky pop aesthetic she’s known for.
Aren’t you lonely/Up there in utopia/Where nothing will ever be enough? Happily numb/So comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble/So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble
Aha, look so good/So put your rose-colored glasses on/And party on
It’s a very interesting note to start the era out on. The major complaint with ‘Roar’ and its subsequent album was that Katy lacked the maturity to evolve with every album. While you can never take the cartoon out of the girl, there’s finally some substance to Katy’s music.
At best, it’s good. Not great, not terrible – but very good. Just look at the team behind it. There’s no doubt that ‘Rhythm’ will extend Katy’s presence on pop radio and lead into another blockbuster era.
