“Electric” is part of the year-long musical collaboration “Pokémon 25: The Album,” which will feature 14 songs from 11 artist such as Perry, Post Malone and J Balvin. It will be released by Universal Music’s Capitol Records, as stated on the company’s website.
The Pokémon Company and Perry first revealed in January that the pop singer would be headlining its “P25 Music” campaign. Perry said she was honored to be part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary celebration because Pokémon trading cards, video games and cafes were a “constant in her life.”
Aside from the musical collaborations, the company will also be launching new Poké Ball replicas throughout 2021. JB
