Bangers be bangers, Dearest Reader, and let us tell you – Katy ‘The Cat’ Perry has returned with a choice cut of prime pop that can hold its own even on this most busy of bop laden weeks.
Titled ‘Never Really Over’, it has a chorus which is basically all on one note but is also – scientific term – fucking amazing. It also has a video which is certainly more-than-good, which you can check out below.
Co written with (deep breath) Zedd, Dan Haywood, Leah Haywood, Dagny, Gino Barletta, Michelle Buzz, Jason Gill, Hayley Warner and probably your nan, it was produced by Zedd and Dreamlab.
Talking about the song, The Perry explains: “All of our relationships – from first love, through failed love, to great love – all become a part of you, so that none are ever really over, and once you accept both the dark and the light, you may find that the darkness brought you to the light.”
It must be good, because Taylor Swift has already put it on her current ‘promotional effort’ ME! playlist, which is kind of like a peace treaty of pop. Everyone is friends now. No, stop listening to what Miley’s singing. We don’t need that drama here! Friends!
