Katy Perry premiered the music video for her latest single, “When I’m Gone,” a collaboration with Swedish DJ Alesso during Monday’s (Jan. 10) College Football Playoff National Championship.
“…We all know I like to push the boundaries and myself, and create unique opportunities for my fans to see them. College GameDay hold a special place in my heart, so partnering with Alesso to become the first artists to ever debut a global music video within a live event on ESPN made for a perfect and natural pairing,” Katy said in a statement late December when the song dropped.
Alesso added, “I’m so thrilled that ‘When I’m Gone’ is finally out. We’ve been waiting the whole year to share it with all of you. I’m honored to collaborate with Katy on such an amazing dance record and with ESPN to become the first artists to premiere our music video at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship. I loved working with her and think this song and video came out super special.”
The singer is currently starring in a colorful and wacky residency at at The Theatre at Resorts World resort and casino, featuring a giant toilet and a singing turd.
And she will enter her fifth year as judge when American Idol season 20 premieres on ABC February 27!
