If you haven’t yet had your morning coffee, here’s something new to get you “Wide Awake.” Try as we might, it’s impossible not to associate Katy Perry’s latest tunes with her short-lived marriage to Russell Brand. “Part of Me” was a sassy kiss-off to an ex-lover, and now we have Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection track “Wide Awake,” a more contemplative ditty on the same subject, on which Katy sings: “I’m falling from cloud nine.” Hear it in full below.

A worthy addition to the Teenage Dream collection, we say. It’s out March 26.
