Katy Perry: 'Rise' Stream, Lyrics & Download - LISTEN NOW!

Katy Perry just surprised everyone by releasing a brand new song called “Rise” and you can listen to it now!

The 31-year-old singer has not released new music since her double platinum album Prism back in October 2013.

“Rise” is set to be featured in NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics. The song was reportedly produced by hitmaker Max Martin. Download it now on iTunes!

“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 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 honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”

    Is she really trying to steal Britney’s thunder!!!!

  • lala mood

    ugh she is so predictable, basically another song like roar, firework, part of me and so on. I know all posters have there schtick, but I find her so boring and safe. I love her first too albums, but the last one showed me thats she’s a one trick pony when it comes to her sound!

  • lala mood

    I agree lol, and britney has the better song if i were to replay them.

  • Arx

    Britney is washed up and cant sing. Katy is the new queen of pop.

  • Arx

    Queen Katy scalping these hoes

  • AprilMay

  • LiiL

    It’s just great, I like her voice so much.
    Haters gonna hate.

  • renata

    I love her voice and her songs are inspirational and relatable

  • Luvstoread

    I agree. Katy’s last CD is 10 times better than anything Britney has done IMO!

  • xica

    Her song “Roar” is so laughable. I still smile when I listen to it

  • Lau D

    I actually found this song beautiful, her voice is unique and the lyrics are beautiful.

  • Jenny from the flop

    look at justjared being shady and moving britney behind katy on the spotlight, even tho they reported her song AFTER katy’s

  • MollyBD

    She has a breathing problem while yelling out the lyrics. Might have been a great song if another singer had sung it.

    Those ppl just talk to say something negative about something without even knowing what they’re talking about.

    That’s the dumbest thing to say. What on earth do you know about singing? Get a life!

  • Klaus Geltl

    Trolls come out again, hurt and bitter about somebody’s success just because they’re nobodies themselves. The song and its production are perfect for the occasion, designed to support the event! From the album coming I would expect more focus on Katy’s ever developing and maturing voice rather than on over-big orchestration like it’s the case in Rise. But for this moment, that way of sound producing the song is just right! I love it.
