Earlier this week, Katy Perry revealed that her new album Prism is on the way. Perry sent a golden semi-truck onto the streets of Los Angeles with the album title and release date of October 22 written in big black letters.
Today, (August 2) Perry gave fans a rather graphic preview of what to expect from her album. In a YouTube video titled “Roar – Burning Baby Blue” she lights her blue wig on fire. Set in front of a black backdrop, Perry takes out her lighter which soon engulfs her wig. Watch below.
Written in tiger print is #ROAR AUG 12. Being that Perry previously announced her album will drop in October, it is likely her new single will come on August 12.
She then took to Twitter to also announce the news, writing: “We don’t need no water let the baby blue burn.”
While little is known about her upcoming release, Perry told Vanity Fair in 2011 that fans can expect her to get much darker on her next album. Later, she told Interview, “Yeah, well, my music is about to get real f***ing dark, so….”
Prism will be released on October 22.
