Don't get excited just yet, because this has not been confirmed. But apparently, Katy Perry is getting a head start in front of Lady Gaga with releasing her single and new album. A few days ago, I reported that "Prism" will be released on October 22nd and serves as the follow up to her 2010 record breaking album "Teenage Dream".
Well now, a supposedly "mocked" and fan created press release hit the web and revealed that the new single is called "Roar" and will hit radio stations Aug. 9th, then iTunes Aug. 13th. Her label has since dismissed the press release. So nothing is concrete just yet. But hell, it could be true being that producer Dr. Luke hinted the title on twitter saying that the single begins with an "R".
So most like'y this news is true. Here's the fake press release.
