Katy Perry has her new music video on the brain.
Last week, the pop star jokingly posted an Insta story of a squirrel running on a wheel and said it was a teaser of her next video. Turns out it was a sign of things to come, because according to a report from French website Melty, Perry has plans to shoot her new visual in L.A. on Jan. 18, 19 and 20th.
Katy Perry Could Be Collaborating With Chance The Rapper
The website is in French, so according to Google Translate, they said this:
One of our sources has indeed been approached to work on the clip of the new single from Katy Perry will begin shooting January 18 in the US . Without knowing more about it for the moment, we know that this top secret shoot will last three days (from 18 to 20) and that it could take place in Los Angeles.
Last summer, Perry told Elvis Duran “it takes a bit of time for me to [write] because I have to those experiences and then write about them" She added: "I have to digest what I’m seeing and recycling it and give my perspective on it.”
Since "Rise" premiered at the Olympics, Perry has had a lot of to pull from: her relationship with boyfriend Orlando Bloom enduring a tabloid firestorm, travels across the globe and the election, to name a few.
“I’m working with a lot of unexpected writers and producers and … that’s bringing out a lot of different things sonically," she continued. "Even when I was working with my go-to producers, I’d always push them to play me a beat that was reserved for Three 6 Mafia or something like that… I know exactly how to write a lyric over that because my strengths are melody and lyrics. I’m putting myself in unexpected situations and that is breeding a lot of new color.”
Perry is also reportedly collaborating with the famed Max Martin.
In August, Perry told Ryan Seacrest she's "in the thick" of recording. "I'm just taking some chances. I'm just having a lot of fun, but experimenting and trying different producers, and different collaborators, and different styles. I'm not rushing."
When pushed for a release date, Perry remained tight-lipped.
"I've got some timelines in my head. But you hear about people going, 'don't take too much time.' And I'm like listen, listen. Let me tell you one thing: music is all that matters. If the music is good, everybody forgets about the time that you took to make it," adding she puts in 110% into everything she does and is "confident if I stay vulnerable and authentic with myself that the music that comes out of me will continue to connect."
If the report Perry is filming a music video next week is true, it's a safe bet we'll hear some tunes come spring time!
