The Fireworks singer eventually flies with her parachute before landing on the rocky cliff again.

Perry had previously said that this song had been “brewing inside me for years”.

“I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite. I know that together we can rise above the fear, in our country, and around the world,” she said.
