Katy Perry has dropped a new song, “What Makes A Woman,” from her upcoming album Smile.
The track was produced by Johan Carlsson, and co-produced by Elvira Anderfjärd.
“Could spend your whole life but you couldn’t/Describe what makes a woman/She’s always been a perfect mystery/Could spend your whole life but you couldn’t/describe what makes a woman/And that’s what makes a woman to me,” Perry sings on the track
Perry had earlier dedicated “What Makes A Woman” to her unborn daughter.
“There is a song on the record called ‘What Makes a Woman,’” Perry told Lebanese radio station NRJ Lebanon in June. “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. 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. And so I think that song is important to me and important for her,” she added.
Smile is set to drop on August 28 via Capital Records. It will be Perry’s first full-length release since 2017’s Witness.
