Pop star Katy Perry has released a new single entitled "Rise", exclusively through Apple Music. The track will be featured in NBC's coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Fans will also be able to see a special spot in 20,000 movie theaters. Perry and NBC Olympics collaborated on the promo which began showing in theaters today and extended version will air on the Today show this morning (July 15th) in the 8A.M. EST hour.

Perry had the following to say about the track, "This is a song that's been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. 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. I can't think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be.

"I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games." Stream the song here.
