The Dr. Luke and Max Martin produced track will be serviced to Rhythmic radios on October 11 having already impacted the Top 40/Mainstream radio stations on September 28, 2011. What does Perry think of the song ?
I’m so pleased to select ‘The One That Got Away’ as my 6th single because this song shows a very different side of me that I haven’t shown with my past singles on this record,”
“I think that everyone can relate to this song. I wrote this song about when you promise someone forever, but you end up not being able to follow through. It’s a bittersweet story – hopefully, the listener learns from hearing it and never has to say they had ‘The One’ get away
