"Walking on Air" follows Perry's latest singles "Roar" and "Dark Horse," both recently released from her album Prism, out Oct. 18.

Perry's new track comes in the wake of some internet buzz caused be her recent interview with Billboard magazine in which she revealed a dark time she went through during her divorce from Russell Brand. In the interview, the mag referenced her song "By the Grace of God" in which she sings about lying on the floor fighting suicidal thoughts.

"That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point," Perry revealed of their split. "I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'"

"All the songs are real-life moments," she said. "I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs."
