Katy Perry announced the name and release date of her new album this morning, prepping fans for Witness, which is scheduled to drop June 9 on Capital Records. According to a release, Perry's fourth studio album "reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire."
Today's album reveal follows Perry's Skip Marley-assisted lead single, "Chained to the Rhythm" and second release, "Bon Appetit," with Migos. Witness' title track sounds like yet another bright, bouncy cut, as Perry begs for a witness to offer her support. "Can I get a witness?" she sings. "Will you be my witness / I'm just looking for a witness in all of this / Looking for a witness to get me through this."
Along with a new promo photo, featuring Perry serving Aladdin Sane-inspired makeup, the singer also announced dates for the North American leg of Witness: The Tour.
Kicking off on Sept. 7 at Columbus Ohio's Schottenstein Center, Perry's tour will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the national organization providing after-school programs for youth. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated, enabling young Americans "to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."
