Katy Perry has released her new single, “Roar”, two days ahead of schedule due to an online leak of the song.
The lead track from her forthcoming album, “Prism”, was originally scheduled for release on Monday, but was issued to radio stations on Saturday.
“Looks like there's a tiger on the loose!!!,” posted Perry on Sunday. “Make sure you catch it on iTunes at midnight EDT TONIGHT!”
Due October 22, Perry’s fourth album, “Prism”, is the follow-up to the 2010 smash, “Teenage Dream”, which sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.
“Teenage Dream” made Billboard history with five No. 1 singles, a single-album record for a female artist, and is the third album in history to produce eight top five hits.
Perry plays the role of Smurfette in the new film, “Smurfs 2”, which is in theaters now.
