On Wednesday (August 7), she tweeted, “This one’s for the kittens. It’s time to make those meows #ROAR,” along with her latest clip. In it, a fluffy white kitten makes her way through an apartment. She gets to a couch, where she plays with a feathery toy. After munching on it, she looks to camera and lets out a big roar.
Then, the peppy single kicks in. With its “Ooh ooh” chant and toe-tapping beat, it seems like Katy might have an anthem on her hands.
“Roar” is the lead single off Katy’s October 22 album, Prism . For the track, Perry reportedly worked with her dream team including Dr. Luke, Max Martin and Bonnie McKee, who cooked up hits for her 2010 album Teenage Dream.
However, in previously released teasers, Perry has been putting her candy-coated Teenage Dream days behind her, having set a bright-blue “California Gurls” wig up in flames in one and later attending a funeral for that persona in another. At the time, she shared, “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, a new beginning is a must!”
Fans are not only awaiting the full release of her new single, but to also find out what’s inside the gold Prism truck that’s been making its way across the United States. So far, it’s stopped in cities like Kansas City, Denver, Los Angeles (where it made its debut) and Las Vegas.
