Can I get a witness?
UPDATE // MAY 15:
Katy Perry confirmed her forthcoming album is titled Witness and updated her official website confirming announcing a world tour of the same name.
It's also worth mentioning Katy Kats believed the album title track would drop today, but that's unlikely now.
Check out the announcement below:
A press release from KatyPerry.com states:
"Today, Katy Perry announced the June 9 release of her new album, Witness (Capitol Records), and an extensive arena tour. With Witness, Katy reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire.
Each ticket purchase for WITNESS: The Tour also includes a copy of her album, Witness. The North American leg of WITNESS: The Tour, produced by AEG Presents, will kick off on September 7 at Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH. The run will include two New York City shows – October 2 at Madison Square Garden and October 11 at Barclays Center – plus an evening at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on November 7 and a December 20 concert at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami. The tour will resume on January 5, 2018 at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans."

EARLIER // May 14:
Katy Perry just premiered her à la carte music video for "Bon Appétit" on Friday, but the pop star is already moving onto the next KP4 single. It's one we've speculated about for months; it's titled "Witness," and it's most likely the name of her forthcoming album.
