“Smile” is the title track of new album
Katy Perry’s official video for her new single, “Smile,” is out now after receiving an exclusive first look on Facebook yesterday (Thurs, Aug 13th). Perry’s “Smile” video is the first official video premiere with Facebook’s PMV launch. Mathew Cullen, who helmed the official videos for “Dark Horse,” “California Gurls” and “Chained To The Rhythm,” directed the new clip.
“Smile” is the title track from Perry’s new album, which will be released on August 28th by Capitol Records. Katy speaks about the album in the cover story of the current issue of People. She recently performed at the Tomorrowland Around the World digital festival and did a SiriusXM Hits 1 Celebrity Session.
Praising her new single, Rolling Stone observed, “Over an upbeat, dance-driven groove to match the positive vibes of the lyrics, Perry extols the virtue of perseverance.” Billboard hailed “Smile” as “empowering…uplifting” and ET noted, “[‘Smile’ is] a buoyant, brassy ode to finding your happiness again.”
Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive “Smile” plus “Daisies,” the gold-certified “Never Really Over” and “Harleys In Hawaii.” Exclusive Smile-themed merchandise bundles are available now via Perry’s webstore. Perry will reveal more details about the project on a #SmileSunday livestream at noon on August 16th.
