Last month, Perry expressed similar sentiments about the emotional track, sharing that the song is both "important to me and important for her [daughter]."
"That is a hope I have for my future child, is that she doesn't have any limits on any of her dreams, or what she wants to be, or who she thinks she is," Perry said on an NRJ Lebanon radio show, according to Billboard. "And, you know, she can change whenever she wants. She doesn't have to … she can try everything on if she wants; figure out what fits."
The artist's radio show appearance came shortly after she announced that her upcoming album will no longer be released on Aug. 14 as intended.
"Welp. I hate to throw this bad news at you like a pie in the face … but if there’s anything 2020 taught me, it’s to not get too attached to plans and be malleable," she captioned a gallery of photos that captured the moment a whipped cream pie was planted on her face.
Perry said "unavoidable production delays" are to blame for the pushed back release, with the album now set to drop two weeks later on Aug. 28. The artist said she doesn't know which will come first: the album debut or the birth of her baby-on-the-way.
"To make this up to you, starting this Sunday (Aug 2) and until the album drops (or until #Babycat 🤰🏼… whichever comes first 🙃😬) join me for #SmileSundays!" she continued. "Every Sunday, time TBA soon, I’m going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things 🙂SMILE🙂 you’ll see new merch … I’ll play some snippets … maybe we’ll go live together … we’ll def have a good chat!"
Addressing her loyal "clowns-n-cats," Perry thanked fans for "being so flexible in this time." She concluded: "It’s a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait! ♥️🤡 Love, Katy."
Smile will now be available wherever you stream music on Aug. 28.
