Katy Perry announces return with ‘Woman’s World’

Katy Perry has announced her return to music with her brand-new single ‘Woman’s World’.

The song will mark a brand new era for the ‘Roar’ singer and is set for release on Thursday  July 11 at 12am BST, 7pm ET and 4pm PST. The track’s accompanying music video will be released the following day.

Perry released a teaser of the new era in the form of the single’s cover art which was shot by acclaimed British photographer Jack Bridgland. The art features her posing in a white bikini with thigh-high robotic boots on her legs.

She also shared a snippet of the track on her TikTok. “Sexy, confident / So intelligent / She is heaven sent / So soft / So strong,” she sings over a bouncy pop beat. ‘Woman’s World’ will serve as the lead single of Perry’s forthcoming album. You can pre-save the singer and pre-order the CD and 7″ vinyl pressing of the song here.

Perry began teasing her new era last month by changing her profile picture. The popstar hinted at her return to music by teasing “one of [her] biggest songs that has yet to come out” whilst speaking at an American Idol event.


Last December, it was reported that the pop star was gearing up to release her “most personal” material yet in 2024. It was said at the time that plans for a world tour were also underway.

Perry had previously hinted at her next album while on stage during her Las Vegas residency last summer. “If you can’t love me at my ‘Witness’ or ‘Smile’ era, then you can’t love me in my KP6 era,” she told the audience.

Smile‘ is Perry’s last studio album, serving as her sixth record. NME reviewed the album at the time, giving it two stars and writing: “It’s frustrating, as this is the woman behind some of the most fun – and biggest-selling – songs of all time. But as much as you want ‘Smile’ to be a return to form, her fifth album’s songs fail to grip. All in all, ‘Smile’ lacks the fireworks of Perry’s record-breaking years.”
