Today, Katy Perry released her new single, "Daisies," an exhilarating celebration of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of cynicism and adversity. The anthemic song is a call to remain true to the course you've set for yourself, regardless of what others may think.
The official video, which received a YouTube Premiere, features Katy performing "Daisies" in a breathtaking natural setting. Filmmaker Liza Voloshin shot the clip from a safe social distance.
