Soak up all the Katy Perry goodness while you can! That's because when the pop star's baby arrives later this year, she plans to go into her "other version of quarantine."
Perry, 35, appeared on "Good Morning America" Friday to kick off the show's Summer Concert Series with a performance of her new single "Daisies" and opened up about how she is "resting instead of nesting" amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
Despite all the pandemic craziness, she said not putting out her new album — releasing August 14 — wasn't really an option. In March, Perry revealed she was pregnant with her first child in her "Never Worn White" music video. Then, in April, she revealed she and her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, are expecting a baby girl.
"I would like this record that I've been working on for two years to come out and be a gift to the public," the bubbly "American Idol" judge explained, "because I think we're all going to be dancing in the street at some point when it's safe."
Perry described "Daisies" as a song about "going after your dreams and not caring about what anyone thinks about that or if they're too big." That said, she also talked about how her tune has taken on a new meaning given our current reality.

"Maybe we've all had this time to reflect and maybe we have taken things for granted or put certain dreams on a shelf," Perry noted. "And now, when we get the freedom to live our lives, aren't we going to live our best lives and maybe fulfill some of those dreams?"
"I know I am," Perry added, getting serious before adding in humor. "I know I'm not going to take anything for granted anymore — especially wine after this pregnancy."

Of her upcoming sixth studio album, Perry said fans can expect it to be "full of songs of empowerment and resilience and joy." On top of that, she wants it to convey a message of "finding kind of the light at the end of the tunnel."
Over the past two years, while writing the album, Perry admitted she was "clinically depressed" and "couldn't really even imagine living, to be completely honest."
"Now I feel like I've done the work and I'm still doing the work emotionally, spiritually, physically, psychologically," Perry continued. "Now I've come to this light at the end of the tunnel, which means I am going to live and, not only that, I'm going to bring life into the world. So it ends in a positive place."
