Katy Perry has released a new single, Electric.

The empowering and uplifting pop track was recorded specifically for 'Pokémon 25: The Album', which will arrive this autumn via Universal Music Group’s Capitol Records as part of the ongoing 25th anniversary celebrations of Pokémon. Perry said:

“When I visited the Pokémon Café while touring Japan, I got so nostalgic. It took me back to my junior high years. So when I got the call to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebration alongside Post Malone and J Balvin, I was elated.

"The song’s themes – resilience, igniting your inner light – have guided my life and also parallel Pokémon’s story and characters. Pikachu is the evolved form of Pichu, so in the video, you see the younger version of me with Pichu and myself in the present day with Pikachu. We both evolve, yet retain a sense of playfulness.”

The song's video was directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada, who helmed the Disney film Raya and the Last Dragon, and finds the vocalist spending quality time with Pikachu. Press play below.

Perry's last studio album was 2020's 'Smile'.
