WATCH: Katy Perry Drops Uplifting “Smile” Performance Video

Katy Perry Smile

American Idol judge Katy Perry has released uplifting new song “Smile.” The title track from her upcoming fifth album came out on Friday July 10. 

And now, the singer drops a performance video for the song. In the clip, Katy is your friendly big bellied (preggo!) clown, just out and about in colorful polka dots, spreading a cheerful message. It’s like a neon Alice and Wonderland, as Katy walks through a fun house maze of giants and miniatures.

“I wrote the title track from the album when I was coming through one of the darkest periods of my life and had lost my smile,” Katy wrote on Instagram. “This whole album is my journey towards the light – with stories of resilience, hope, and love.” She added, ” I hope it can be a few minutes of energizing hopefulness for you as it is for meee.”

Smile will be released on August 14th via Capitol and can be pre-ordered now.
