Katy Perry has unveiled an animated lyric video for her new single, “Daisies,” and as she explains, her performance of the song on American Idol was an attempt to create a live-action version of that animation.
She tweeted the video with the message, “Last week I was in a live action version of this animation created by @valleeduhamel, and I’m happy to reveal the next dimension of #Daisies with this lyric video.”
She also posted a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of her American Idol performance, which used a technology called XR, or Extended Reality — and it turns out she actually left her home to film it. Specifically, she shot it on a special XR stage, in “a safe environment that supported the production within COVID-19 guidelines,” according to the studio.
Katy is also selling a “Daisies” face mask, with all proceeds going to Direct Relief, a charity based in her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA that provides PPE and medical items to health care workers on the front lines of the pandemic.
It’s been 1 week since my first TV performance of #Daisies🌼 and I know a lot of y’all have been curious about how we did it… here’s a look at how XR studios transported me to that animated 🌎 (that u may or may not see again soon 👀) pic.twitter.com/GUVtxgfCl6
