July 5 just can’t come soon enough. That is when Katy Perry’s documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, hits theaters! Katy is not only super excited about the documentary, but is also excited about the re-release of her last album, Complete Confection. Katy wrote “Wide Awake” to be the “perfect last word of me at this moment.” She loved the song so much, she wanted to add it to her re-release of the album instead of waiting until her next album.
She also loves the tune so much, she just released a music video for it. It’s not just a music video, but it’s an awesome sneak peek of her documentary. The reason for the sneak peek is because Katy says “Wide Awake” was a perfect tie-in to the movie because it spoke out to her fans in a way she was really looking for. In a recent interview with MTV, she said:
“It was a song that I hadn’t written for Teenage Dream,” Perry said in the interview. “I was doing this movie and they asked me if I wanted to write an end-title song for the movie and I was like, ‘I know exactly what I want to say.’ I was really kind of dying to write another song at that point.”
