Accompanied by guitar, Katy Perry gives a passionate, stripped-down performance of her anthemic new single on ‘Daisies’ (Acoustic), released by Capitol Records. Listen HERE.

Since its release in May, ‘Daisies’ has amassed more than 105 million combined global streams. Oliver Heldens and MK have remixed the song. ‘Daisies’, which is approaching the top 10 at Hot AC radio, is from ‘KP5’, as fans refer to Katy’s as-yet-untitled fifth studio album, which will be released on August 14 by Capitol Records. Fans can pre-order ‘Daisies’-themed bundles here.

Following her performance on the “American Idol” season finale, Idolator said,

“[She] belted out ‘Daisies’ with the help of cutting-edge technology, which found her soaring through the sky.” Billboard hailed it as “spectacular” while Metro UK found it “mind-bending”. She launched the 2020 “Good Morning America” Concert Series with a performance of ‘Daisies’. Katy also performed the song at YouTube Originals’ “Dear Class Of 2020” virtual commencement ceremony, on the #BeApp as part of the Coke Studio Sessions and during her iHeartRadio Living Room Concert Series session at Hotel Café in Los Angeles, the club where she got her start 15 years ago.

Katy co-headlined the recent Democracy Summer 2020 livestream. The event kicked off a campaign to register 200,000 new voters this summer, led by a coalition that includes Rock the Vote, Voto Latino Foundation, When We All Vote, March For Our Lives and others. Katy also performed at “Can’t Cancel Pride: Helping LGBTQ+ People in Need” and joined former President Barack Obama and numerous other public figures in sharing messages of support during Pride Live’s Stonewall Day livestream. View her “Can’t Cancel Pride” appearance – praised as “funky and fabulous” by “Entertainment Tonight” – HERE. The clip features the Oliver Heldens remix of ‘Daisies’ plus ‘I Kissed A Girl’, “Peacock’, ‘Walking On Air’, and ‘Swish Swish’.
