Katy Perry is celebrating the release of her new album, Smile, from her hospital bed.

Alongside a promo clip of the record, Katy wrote on Instagram: ‘IT’S HERE! IT’S REALLY HERE! I finally got back my smile! Hope this record puts one on your face #SMILE IS OUT EVERYWHERE NOW! LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH ENJOY (sent from my hospital bed lol) (sic)’.

‘I think that song is important to me and important for her.’
Katy previously described her follow-up to 2017’s Witness as ‘75% Prism and 25% Teenage Dream.

‘Recently, it has taken a new meaning for me, in light of what the whole world is experiencing.
‘Each of us is one in more than seven billion, with our own story of strength and resilience to tell… I hope it will be the soundtrack to going for your dreams no … especially the ones we left behind.’
