Katy zooms on Harley in Hawaii

Pop queen and American Idol judge, Katy Perry serves major 60’s biker chick vibes with her third new stand-alone single “Harleys in Hawaii”. The track was co-written and co-produced by hit singer/songwriter Charlie Puth.

She announced the release date and the new track’s artwork on her Instagram and Twitter on October 14. And boy, did this announcement cause an uproar on social media. The artwork was leaked just a few hours before she officially announced the news on her own.

Perry recalls the inspiration for her latest pop track to be of a vacation she took with her now fiancé Orlando Bloom, during her shoot of American Idol in Hawaii on the Zach Sang Show.

Perry revealed, “We rented a Harley because we were just there for a few days… You know, be on the back of a motorcycle in Hawaii and just let the air flow on your face. It’s so beautiful. It was awesome!” Perry said. “But I can remember specifically where I was, the street corner I was at in Oahu and turning that corner and whispering to Orlando, going “I’m going to write a song called ‘Harleys In Hawaii.'”

Katy filmed the music video for the track in July in Hawaii, and we see her relaxing on a beach in a floral-patterns and ride a Harley in a leather jacket featuring the yin-yang logo featured in her Never Really Over music video.

Harleys in Hawaii follows recent double singles releases of “Never Really Over” and “Small Talk” earlier this year.
