Katy Perry Confirms Kick-Off of KP6 Era With Upcoming Release of Empowering ‘Woman’s World’ Single

After months of teasing, Katy Perry officially kicked off the countdown to KP6 on Monday (June 17) with the announcement that the first single from her upcoming sixth album, “Woman’s World,” will drop on July 11. The news was heralded with a brief snippet of the empowering pop song as well as the single’s eye-popping art, shot by British photographer Jack Bridgland.

The photo features Perry dressed in a skimpy white bikini, her legs encased in what look like metallic pegasus legs and her arms tucked into her voluminous black hair. “Woman’s World” is slated to drop at 7 p.m. ET on July 11, with the official music video to debut the next day.

Perry uploaded a 15-second preview of the song on Monday morning as well, in which she poses and flips her hair while wearing the outfit from the single cover accented by a chunky necklace while singing, “Sexy, confident, so intelligent/ She is heaven-sent, so soft, so strong,” over a bubbling electro pop beat.

At press time, no additional information was available on the title of Perry’s sixth full-length studio album, the follow-up to 2020’s Smile. Perry began ramping up excitement for her next era last month when, after finishing her seven-year run on American Idol, she changed her social media profile pic to a sleek, futuristic silver logo with her shiny initials floating inside a pair of parentheses.

In April Perry told Access Hollywood that her next album was going to be one of her happiest LPs to date. “I just have yet to make a record from a place of feeling really happy and whole and full of love,” she said at the time. “Sometimes artists are like, ‘Oh, that’s boring, you want to make music from kind of like a tougher place,’ but actually it’s very bright and joyful, like pure joy and fun and playful and celebratory and a party.”

Last August during a show on her Las Vegas residency, Perry told the crowd, “If you can’t love me at my Witness and Smile era, then you can’t love me in my KP6 era.” Technically, the upcoming album is the singer’s seventh, though she did release her debut LP, Katy Hudson, in 2001 under her birth name, which had a more Christian rock-themed vibe than her subsequent major label albums.
