I‚Äôve been sitting here for the past few hours waiting for something‚ÄĒanything‚ÄĒto be released by¬†Katy Perry. The most optimistic parts of myself expected a full album (perhaps a Spotify exclusive) from my guiltiest of guilty pleasures, but it appears I had been hoping for too much, as¬†all we Katycats were given this cold winter Friday is a single.

‚ÄúChained to the Rhythm‚ÄĚ is a song I first heard after plugging my headphones into a disco ball chained to a bench, and now that I‚Äôve listened to the full track (which is fine, and includes a verse by Skip Marley) it in the comfort of my own home, I‚Äôm enjoying it a little more. Still, though, where‚Äôs the album? (It‚Äôs been over three years since her last one.)

Anyway, Perry‚Äôs newest single is streaming on Spotify right now. And it‚Äôs better than ‚ÄúRise,‚ÄĚ thank heavens.
