Katy Perry has released her new song “Harleys in Hawaii.” Perry co-wrote the song with Charlie Puth, Johan Carlsson and Jacob Kasher, all of whom also worked with her on recent single “Small Talk.”
In the clip the singer is filmed riding a Harley Davidson in a leather jacket featuring the yin-yang logo from her previous ‘Never Really Over’ music video.
Katy, who is a natural blonde, has spent years maintaining her hair as a dark brunette, even dyeing her eyebrows and eyelashes to match.
“To be on the back of a motorcycle in Hawaii with the air blowing on your face, it’s so beautiful,” Perry recently told the Official Charts Company. “I can remember specifically where I was; the street corner I was on in Oahu, whispering to Orlando [Bloom, her fiancé and actor] and saying ‘I’m going to write a song called ‘Harleys in Hawaii’. And I did. That’s something that will come at some point.”
Directed by Barcelona-based studio Manson, the music video lives up to the song title as Perry rides a Harley on a Hawaiian highway, stopping along the way to sing karaoke at a tiki bar or sit along the shoreline and gaze out at the Pacific.
“Harleys in Hawaii” is Perry’s third single as lead artist this year. It follows “Never Really Over” and “Small Talk,” both of which were debuted with visuals. She was also featured on Zedd’s “365” and Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma (Remix).”
