Introduced this morning by The Pokémon Firm, popstar, American Idol choose, and new mother Katy Perry is headlining P25, a yearlong collaboration with Common Music Group artists to supply … music of some type? It’s obscure.
It’s not clear precisely what the P25 Music program entails. Within the official announcement, The Pokémon Firm calls it a “huge, yearlong music marketing campaign” that includes “a number of the largest names in music, from rising artists to award-winning world superstars.” It could possibly be well-liked artists recording brand-new pocket monster-inspired tunes. It could possibly be Pokémon showing in music movies, which I’m fairly certain are nonetheless a factor. Or it could possibly be an entire bunch of artists getting collectively to do the Pokérap. It could possibly be all of this and extra. What’s vital, I believe, is that Katy Perry is concerned and enthusiastic about it.
“Pokémon has been a relentless in my life from enjoying the unique video video games on my Recreation Boy, to buying and selling Pokémon TCG playing cards at lunch, to the adventures of catching Pokémon on the road with Pokémon GO. I’ve even visited the Pokémon Café in Japan whereas on tour! It’s an honor to be chosen to assist have fun a franchise that has given me a lot pleasure within the final 25 years, and to have the ability to watch it evolve within the methods it’s offered that form of electrical pleasure for the children in my life and around the globe,” stated Katy Perry within the announcement, revealing completely nothing about what P25 Music is or does.
The announcement was accompanied by a beautiful photograph of Perry with a Pikachu tail. In a not-very-informative article on People, Perry revealed that Pikachu was her favourite.
I’m certain no matter comes of this at the moment underdefined collaboration will likely be pretty. Katy Perry has beforehand labored with EA on The Sims franchise, and the Sesame Avenue model of “Scorching N Chilly” that includes Elmo is a Fahey household basic.
