Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves are about to be spending a lot of time together on the road for the Prismatic Tour, starting Aug. 10, and now they’ll have one more thing to talk about: their first song together.
After Perry tweeted about her love for Musgraves’ “Merry Go ‘Round,” the pair connected to record a song and an episode of CMT’s Crossroads. What kind of common ground does the pop star have with the country star? The Wizard of Oz, of course.
Their collaborative song is inspired by the beloved childhood film.
“I brought some ideas, and we actually ended up writing a pretty cool song,” Musgraves told Billboard. “It’s loosely based on Dorothy’s version of The Wizard of Oz, her being in love with the Tin Man, but he didn’t have a heart. And hopefully maybe something will happen with it down the road. Either way, it’s cool to step out of my zone and write for somebody else.”
There’s no word of a release yet, but it won’t be surprising if our first listen comes from a YouTube video taken at one of their upcoming shows together.
