Are you counting down the days until the opening ceremony of this summer's Olympics in Rio? Well, Katy Perry is getting pumped for the games in an awesome new way! The pop star just dropped her new track, "Rise," – available now on iTunes and it's a powerful and inspiring anthem that is all for the Olympics.
"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," Katy said in a press 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," she added. "I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games."
Katy's song is also featured in an inspiring new video for the games, and you can check it out below!
