Fans no longer need to find a disco ball to hear Katy Perry’s new single. Katy has released a lyric video for “Chained to the Rhythm,” a dance anthem with some political undertones. The lyric video stars a hamster in a miniature house complete with a fully functional kitchen. It also features Skip Marley, grandson of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley.
The song has a pop sound layered over a disco-infused dance hall beat. The lyrics could work in a club or at a protest. With lines like “We think we’re free” and “So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble,” the track is a subtle nod towards Katy’s own call for artists to get back to work after many were disappointed by recent political outcomes.
