Katy Perry‘s lyric video for her latest single, “Unconditionally,” is a stripped down look at the many effects love can have on a person.
The black and white clip for the big power ballad off Prism (out October 22) features two women–Janell Shirtcliff and Erika Linder–who look like they’re straight out of a Calvin Klein ad, getting real about their relationship.
In the video, Perry’s words are meant to soothe a worried soul as she sings: “There is no fear now/Let go and just be free/I will love you unconditionally.”
“I think it’s a universal love song that everyone’s going to be able to relate to no matter the age, no matter male or female,” Perry told MTV about her follow-up to “Roar.” ”It’s my favorite song off the record.”
On October 23, Perry hits the stage at L.A.’s legendary Hollywood Bowl as part of the We Can Survive benefit show. All proceeds from the show, which also features Ellie Goulding, Tegan and Sara, Sara Bareilles and Kasey Musgraves, will go to the Young Survival Coalition–the global organization that is dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.
