Katy Perry unleashes new album 'Smile' after giving birth

MUMBAI: What a week Katy Perry is having.

The superstar singer just gave birth to her and Orlando Bloom's daughter Daisy Dove Bloom on Aug. 26, and now Perry says she's ready to "deliver" her second child: a new record. At midnight on Friday, Aug. 28, the Grammy-nominated artist dropped her sixth studio album, Smile. "IT'S HERE! IT'S REALLY HERE!" Perry wrote to her fans on social media. "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."

The 35-year-old star also noted that her message was "sent from my hospital bed lol." With this new album comes 12 songs from Perry, including "Daises," a nod to her daughter's name. Smile also includes previously released tracks "Never Really Over" and "What Makes A Woman" as well as "Harleys In Hawaii." Other tracks on the record include "Cry About It Later" and "Champagne Problems."

Ahead of the album's release, Perry took to social media to acknowledge the major week she's having. "delivering a baby and a record in the same week," she tweeted, "dont f--k with mama aka #whatmakesawoman #smile."

Perry and fiancé Bloom, who serve as Goodwill Ambassadors for UNICEF, announced the birth of their baby girl via the organization.

"We are floating with love and wonder from the safe and healthy arrival of our daughter," the couple said in a joint statement. "But we know we're the lucky ones and not everyone can have a birthing experience as peaceful as ours was."

"Communities around the world are still experiencing a shortage of healthcare workers and every eleven seconds a pregnant woman or newborn dies, mostly from preventable causes," the parents continued. "Since COVID-19, many more newborn lives are at risk because of a greater lack of access to water, soap, vaccines and medicines that prevent diseases. As parents to a newborn, this breaks our hearts, as we empathize with struggling parents now more than ever."

In honor of their daughter, Perry and Bloom set up a donation page. "By supporting UNICEF, you are supporting a safe start to life and reimagining a healthier world for every child," the duo concluded. "We hope your can bloom with generosity."
