Katy Perry Announces New Album ‘Witness,’ Out June 9

Katy Loves ''Switch''
No bad blood here! Katy Perry says that she loves Iggy Azalea's upcoming single ''Switch.''

Katy Perry has officially announced her fourth studio albumWitness will be released June 9 on Capitol Records. And it will feature both singles she released this year: “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, and “Bon Appetit” featuring Migos. The purposeful pop star also announced the extensive Witness: The Tour, with the Aladdin Zane-esque art above. The arena trek, her first in two years, launches September 7 in Columbus, Ohio; each ticket purchase will also include a copy of Witness.

Leading up to this news, Katy had a Times Square billboard, then an Instagram post featuring an eye illustration. But the first actual sign that her album was titled Witness was the Maison Margiela outfit she wore to the Met Gala. The word “WITNESS,” as well as an eye icon, was embroidered on her crimson veil. Prior to that, she had teased a song by that same name. “We’re all just looking for connection (yeah), we all want to be seen,” she sings. “I’m looking for someone who speaks my language, someone to ride this ride with me. Can I get a witness (witness)?”

U.S. tickets for Witness: The Tour on May 22; and Canadian dates, May 26.  See the official trailer and dates below.
