距离上一张专辑《棱镜》已经四年没有推出录音室作品的Katy Perry终于有新歌推出,也宣布着新专辑正式开跑!新歌《Chained to the Rhythm》一经推出立刻毫无悬念登上各大榜单,流行女王的热度依旧不减!

Katy Perry’s newest music will have you chained to the dance floor.

After four years without a new studio album, the 13-time Grammy nominee officially launched the buildup to her fifth record with a new track, “Chained to the Rhythm,”  hitting the charts early Friday.

轻快的旋律搭配迪斯科律动,尽管这首歌初听之下又是一首派对音乐,但在随性而迷幻的节奏背后,Perry却传达了一种对于现实的清醒态度以及在极致的完了背后那种内心的空虚。

“我们怎么了?在一个个镜头前演绎人生,将白日梦当作现实。我们的生活多么美好,美好得看不到烦恼……”Perry在歌词中唱道,“在这个什么都不缺的幻想乌托邦,你会感到孤独吗?你还能感受到快乐吗?”

Though the song sounds like a soon-to-be party classic with its easy pulse and disco elements, layered underneath the upbeat veneer, Perry delivers a strong message about awareness and activism—and, according to her, how it’s lacking.

“Are we crazy? Living our lives through a lens, trapped in our white-picket fence like ornaments—so comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble. So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble,” she sings. “Aren’t you lonely up there in utopia where nothing will ever be enough? Happily numb.”

歌词中还有“rose-colored glasses”“wasted zombie”等字眼,形容我们用一种正面乐观但也许不实际的眼光看待事情,如同戴上了一副玫瑰色的眼镜。我们以为这就是自由,却不知道掩耳盗铃的欺骗只是将自己变成了没有思想的行尸走肉。

As fans dance to the blasting track, there’s a political play on words peppered throughout the chorus. “So put your rose-colored glasses on and party on. Turn it up, it’s your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat. Stumbling around like a wasted zombie. Yeah, we think we’re free. Drink, this one is on me. We’re all chained to the rhythm.”

这首单曲的制作阵容非常庞大,不仅有Max Martin, Sia, Ali Payami 和Skip Marley,里面还有Marley的说唱,用高高在上的姿态进行讽刺,表达Perry的政治态度。

Perry目前已经确认将会登上本周末的格莱美舞台,究竟她会带来怎样精彩的表演,我们拭目以待!

The single, which Perry co-wrote with Max Martin, Sia, Ali Payami and Skip Marley, also features a rap by Marley aimed at people in high positions of power. “It is my desire, break down the walls to connect, inspire. Ay, up in your high place, liars. Time is ticking for the empire. The truth they feed is feeble as so many times before. They greed over the people. They stumbling and fumbling and we’re about to riot. They woke up, they woke up the lions.”

Now that the star is confirmed to take the stage at the Grammys this weekend, we have one guess what song she’ll be singing Sunday night.
