Katy Perry Released A New Song For The Olympics And You Can Hear It Now

"Rise" is Katy Perry's first new song in two years, named after what champions do at the Olympics.

Katy Perry Released A New Song For The Olympics And You Can Hear It Now

WHAT: "Rise," a new song written and recorded for the rapidly approaching 2016 Summer Olympics.

WHO: Katy Perry.

WHY WE CARE: Whether Rio is ready or not, the bustling Brazilian city is getting an Olympics very soon. The games themselves, which start on August 5, just got a little more ready with their very own motivational song by Katy Perry. Just like the last four-letter title from the singer, "Roar" from 2014, "Rise" is a montage-worthy anthem that will at least get you to the gym, if not a gold medal. "Rise" will be used during NBC Olympics coverage, including the Opening Ceremony. If it's anything like 2012's Danny Boyle-curated ceremony, there will be many other stirring, well-chosen tunes to follow.
