Katy Perry has announced her new album is called 'Witness' and will arrive next month
Katy Perry has announced her new album 'Witness' will be released on June 9.
The 32-year-old pop beauty teased her fans that a huge announcement was on the way last night (14.05.17), and now she has confirmed her new record will be out next month and she is also set to promote it with a tour of the US.
Before she embarks on the American run, she will perform at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Hull, North England on May 27.
Sharing the news on Twitter, she wrote: "WITNESS THE ALBUM ! THE TOUR !IT'S ALL HAPPENING ! http://www.katyperry.com #WITNESSKP (sic)"
The 'Chained to the Rhythm' hitmaker changed all of her social media profile pictures to a blinking-eye graphic with today's date written behind the eyelid over the weekend.
The same visual was posted on a massive billboard in Times Square, New York.
It was a preview of the song 'Witness', on which she sings: "Will you be my witness? I am just looking a witness in all of this. Looking for a witness to get me through this."
The track follows 'Bon Appetite' and the pop superstar was recently confirmed to feature on Calvin Harris' forthcoming album 'Funk Wave Bounces Vol 1'.
Katy famously fell out with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker - who Calvin dated for 15 months until June last year - in 2012, after she claimed Katy pinched three of her backing dancers from her 'Red' tour.
However, despite their disagreements and after Taylor allegedly wrote her 2015 song 'Bad Blood' about Katy, she said she won't be addressing her feud on her own record.
She said recently: "I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that's calling out any one person. One thing to note is: You can't mistake kindness for weakness and don't come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. And that's not to any one person, and don't quote me that it is, because it's not. It's not about that."
