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.
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。
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.
