Katy Perry's New Holiday Song Is Almost Here
The holiday season just got a whole lot brighter: A new Katy Perry song called "Every Day Is a Holiday" is set to arrive on Nov. 23 — just in time for Thanksgiving! What glorious news. We first learned of the festive track's existence in September, and now, thanks to the "Roar" hit-maker's new interview with Glamour UK, we know that it will be featured in an upcoming advertisement for clothing retailer H&M. (ICYMI: Perry is the face of H&M's 2015 holiday campaign.) The now 31-year-old artist's last album, PRISM, debuted all the way back in October 2013, which means fans have been waiting for new music from their idol for over two years now. Needless to say, anticipation levels for this release are extremely high. So, what does "Every Day Is a Holiday" sound like?
Glamour UK reports that Perry worked on "Every Day Is a Holiday" with Duke Dumont, a 33-year-old Grammy Award–nominated British DJ whose fame has been steadily increasing over the last several years. Since releasing his first EP in 2007, Dumont has had significant success in the United Kingdom (earning two No.1 singles), but he has yet to crack the notoriously difficult mainstream music market in the United States. It's possible that teaming up with Perry — an enormous pop star who is no stranger to Billboard Hot 100 chart — could change his luck.
Below are three of Dumont's most popular singles to date. Hopefully, they'll give us a hint as to what "Every Day Is a Holiday" might sound like. I can't wait to hear the track!
"Need U (100%)"
Dumont is a house producer, so I think it's a safe bet that "Every Day Is a Holiday" is an up-tempo dance record similar to "Need U (100%)."
"I Got U"
I'm crossing my fingers that "Every Day Is a Holiday" features lots of '90s house piano, just like "I Got U."
"Won't Look Back"
In some ways, "Won't Look Back" reminds me of Perry's house-influenced "Walking on Air" from PRISM. I hope the singer delivers some rafter-shaking house diva vocals in "Every Day Is a Holiday"!
Stay tuned for more details.
