American Idol judge Katy Perry recently released a new single with Swedish DJ Alesso called “When I’m Gone.” On Monday night, the pair debuted the music video during the halftime show of the College Football Playoff National Championship on ESPN.


Katy Perry Debuts ‘When I’m Gone’ Music Video

The “When I’m Gone” video has a futuristic feel. Perry starts the clip in a phone booth, while a robotic dog waits for her outside. “You know, I just think it’s time to give them everything they want,” she says into the phone before walking into an industrial building.

In one part of the video, Perry performs with backup dancers while standing in water. In another scene, she crawls on the floor of a room featuring several computers. She even gets some dance moves in at one point while wearing a purple catsuit.

Throughout the entire video, Perry sports long, dark hair. It’s a departure from the shorter blonde looks she’s been rocking in recent years, and a throwback to how the pop star used to look. The video itself is a bit of a throwback, despite the modern technology. It definitely has the feel of a pop video from the early 2000s.


Alesso also appears briefly in the video, seemingly creating lightning with his hands. In another brief shot, he and Perry stand back-to-back looking serious. At one point, Perry also seems to turn into a hologram.

Fans Are Loving the New Music Video

Fans have shared their love for the new song and video, as well as Perry’s look. “THE HAIR, THE LOOKS, THE DANCING! This was epic!” wrote one YouTube commenter. Another wrote, “She’s clearly back with the EPIC songs that she knows how to do! I hope she’s coming all over the world this year.”


Twitter users had a lot to say about the video as well, with one fan writing that “Katy Perry owns halftimes.” Another fan wrote that they’ve been waiting to see the singer “with black hair dancing & singing in the rain to a dance pop track.”

Perry wrote on Instagram that she wants her fans to tag her in videos after they learn the choreography and try it out for themselves.
