Ahead of the release of her first single in years, Katy Perry has made a major announcement. The pop singer has revealed the name and release date of her forthcoming new album, which fans have been waiting patiently for.

Perry’s new album is called 143. The project is set to be released on September 20, which should give her plenty of time to share a few singles and promote the studio effort heavily.

The news was shared via the singer’s record label, Capitol Records. The announcement refers to the full-length as “a sexy, fearless return to form for the multifaceted musician. Jam-packed with the kind of empowering and provocative pop anthems fans have come to love.”

The first single from 143, “Woman’s World,” is set to drop tomorrow (July 11). Perry has been promoting the tune for weeks, and it’s become one of the most-hyped tracks so far this year.

“Woman’s World” brings Perry back to the high-octane dance-pop that has served her well in the past. Through a number of snippets that have been shared via the superstar’s social media–as well as at least one brand partnership–millions already have a sense of what the cut will sound like, as well as what to expect from the music video.

The upcoming single was co-written by Perry, along with Chloe Angelides and producers Dr. Luke, Vaughn Oliver, Aaron Joseph, and Rocco Did It Again! Luke’s presence brings a certain amount of controversy to the project, as many in the music industry turned on him after Kesha accused him of sexual assault, among other crimes. The two sued each other for years and eventually dropped their suits.

Perry last released an album in August 2020. She dropped Smile in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and sadly, it underperformed. The set peaked at No. 5, making it the lowest-charting full-length from the Grammy nominee since her debut, One of the Boys, in 2008.

Smile produced several singles, but none of them reached the highs that Perry had become used to reaching. The biggest hit from the title was “Never Really Over,” which rose as high as No. 15 on the Hot 100. “Daisies” reached No. 40, while several other cuts failed to chart.
