Daisies marks the first single off of American pop sensation Katy Perry’s forthcoming record – how well does it hold up compared to her earlier lead singles?
The track is an atmospheric pop ballad, celebrating the aspiration of the human spirit through its empowering lyricism:
“Told them your dreams and they all started laughing / I guess you're out of your mind 'til it actually happens”
As opposed to the bubbly nature of Perry’s previous lead singles, the production, crafted by Grammy Award-winning The Monsters & Strangerz, is vulnerable and mid-tempo.
Its simplicity makes for an enjoyable track, with a message that is healing for most.
And while Perry’s at-times strained vocals on the song’s fiery chorus can polarize musically-trained ears, Daisies is a blooming artistic effort.
As of now, the singer's upcoming album project remains untitled, with its release window unknown. Until said record drops, let this new track cover you in daisies, daisies!
