About a month after Katy Perry released her love ballad “Unconditionally” on Oct. 16, a new preview for the video hit the net on Nov. 14 — and it doesn’t disappoint!

Read on for all the details.
Katy Perry’s Music Video For ‘Unconditionally’ — Preview Her New Vid
The video opens on a group of finely dressed men and women dancing in a beautiful ballroom as snowflakes fall around them. Pictures of the song’s lyrics intercut the images, asking, “Did I get too close?” “Did I almost see?” “What’s really on the inside?”
Then the video speeds up, taking us through a fast-paced montage of images of various stages of life. In one of the images, Katy, 29, is shown wearing a white wedding gown as a group of handsome men surround her. In another, she is weeping into her hands.
Finally the images come to a halt and Katy, wrapped in a gorgeous gold dress, appears and belts out the powerful chorus to “Unconditionally.” Katy is singing like she means it in the just-released clip, really conveying the emotion of the ballad.
“Let go and just be free,” the video tells us. “Open your heart and let it begin.”
You don’t have to tell us twice, Katy — we can’t wait for it to begin! The full video is expected to be released on Nov. 19.
Katy Perry Releases “Unconditionally”
Katy’s love track “Unconditionally” dropped on Oct. 16. Her previous chart-topper “Roar” was a power anthem — but “Unconditionally” takes a much softer tone. The heartfelt song shows off Katy’s serious pipes as she belts out one of her most romantic songs yet.
Katy explained the song in an interview with MTV, saying, “It’s a universal love song that everyone’s going to be able to relate to no matter the age, no matter male or female.”
But is the sweet ballad really about Katy’s boyfriend John Mayer, 36? The couple, who have been dating since August 2012, are rumored to wed soon. Katy sounds ready to say ‘I do’ again, and it looks like John will be the lucky guy. “Unconditionally’s” deep lyrics and romantic video seem to have a lot to do with her new love. But we’ll let you be the judge!
