Katy Perry has unveiled the official video for her new single Rise.
Directed by Paul Gore (John Legend, Amy Winehouse), Rise finds Katy on a solitary journey, traversing the stunning red sandstone formations of Utah’s Snow Canyon and Sand Hollow State Parks. The video was produced by Matthew Ayriss and Danny Lockwood with Kathleen Heffernan and Paul Laurens serving as Executive Producers.
The video for Rise was premiered by NBC during their one-hour Rio Olympics Preview Special last night. Rise is serving as a soundtrack for NBC Olympics’ coverage of the 2016 games, including during its primetime broadcast of tomorrow’s Opening Ceremony.
Upon its release less than three weeks ago, Rise topped the iTunes chart in 56 countries and it was the number one worldwide trending topic on Twitter. Rise is written by Katy Perry, Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ali Payami.
