Fans knew that something was afoot after someone spotted a billboard in New York City's Times Square with Katy's made-up eye and the words “May 15.” Right on time, she's told us exactly when to expect the album.
The promotional image for the album and tour (which may be the LP's cover) features Katy and two of her clones lined up in a row with dark hair and striking makeup, sort of like if Sarah Manning from Orphan Black got a David Bowie makeover with some Kraftwerk vibes thrown in for good measure.
Katy also shared what appears to be a clip of the album's title track on Sunday (May 14). “Looking for a witness to get me through this,” she sings.
The Witness tour kicks off September 7 in Columbus, Ohio, and runs all the way into February 2018.
