Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Pop star Katy Perry (left) got stuck into song­writ­ing in a bid to get over the de­pres­sion of the US elec­tion. The 32-year-old singer, who was an avid sup­porter of Hil­lary Clin­ton dur­ing the US pres­i­den­tial race, which even­tu­ally saw Repub­li­can can­di­date Don­ald Trump take the White House, said that she chan­nelled her dis­ap­point­ment into her music and came out with her new song — Chained to the Rhythm.

“This was af­ter the elec­tion and I was kind of de­pressed and, you know, I def­i­nitely didn’t want to write a club banger. I was like, ‘How are we writ­ing a club banger when the world is on fire?’ It was a nice ex­er­cise of writ­ing a song , and when you first lis­ten to it, it’s a re­ally fun song. But, I guess, the more you dive in to it, you re­alise that it has a dif­fer­ent sub-text,” Perry said. The singer, who teamed up with Sia on the track, also praised her best friend for it.
