Katy Perry has unveiled the full lyric video to her new single ‘Roar’.
The single – which is the first to be released from her new album Prism – leaked over the weekend, but Perry has now posted the full song online.
The build up to the release of her upcoming LP has seen a gold lorry driving around USA with “KATY PERRY · PRISM · 10.22.13″ written on it. Several teaser videos have also been uploaded to YouTube which feature Perry burning her iconic blue wig and attending a funeral for one of her Teenage Dream outfits.
Although the track has heavier guitars and percussion than the singles from Teenage Dream, the track is certainly not a depart from pop, with a massive build up to the anthemic chorus. The lyrics hint at what can be expected from her new music, as she belts out the line “I am a champion and you’re going to hear me roar!”
The weekend saw some problems for Perry’s promotional campaign as a drunk driver damaged the gold lorry advertising her album in USA.
The track is the first to be taken from her upcoming fourth album, Prism, which will be released on 21st October 2013 in the UK, and a day later in the US.
‘Roar’ will be released in the UK on 8th September 2013.
