Katy Perry is set to perform her new song “When I’m Gone” for CNN’s “New Year’s Eve” with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen.
Alesso & Katy Perry “When I’m Gone” was released globally today via 10:22PM / Astralwerks / Capitol Records. The vibrant new dance track marks the iconic artists’ first collaboration together. A high-drama anthem built on throbbing beats and powerful piano melodies, the single spotlights Katy’s radiant vocal presence as she offers up a fierce warning to the one who’s left her behind.
Written by Alesso and Katy with Alida Garpestad Peck, Rami Yacoub, Space Primates’ Nathan Cunningham and Marc Sibley, and Alma Goodman, “When I’m Gone” comes to wild and dazzling life thanks to Alesso’s immaculate sound design and endlessly imaginative yet pop-perfect production. Katy will be performing a special medley of “When I’m Gone”/”Walking On Air” for CNN’s “New Year’s Eve” with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen.
Back for their fifth year together, Cooper and Cohen will say goodbye to 2021 and ring in 2022 live from Times Square. At 12:30am ET, they will hand over to CNN’s Don Lemon and Alisyn Camerota, and comedian Dulce Sloan, who will continue the celebration in New Orleans as the Central Time Zone rings in the New Year.
Tonight, Katy Perry will launch “PLAY,” her first-ever Las Vegas residency, at Resorts World, Las Vegas. She gave fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the show during her appearance on “Good Morning America” earlier today.
Of the PLAY Residency, Katy says, “I’m so proud to bring this larger-than-life show to Vegas. This residency has been years in the making – I remember being in a hard hat and steel-toed boots to walk among the steel beams that make up this gorgeous new theater! I had such a wild time dreaming up all six acts of this show, and it really made me listen to my catalog in a whole new way to come up with a set list that included 20 of my most-streamed songs as well as my new Alesso collaboration to keep things fresh.”
“PLAY,” which will run through March 19, 2022, will include exclusive New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day performances. For details and tickets, visit https://www.katyperry.com/tour/.
