Katy Perry has sprung a leak. “Roar” which was supposed to make its official debut on Monday, debuted ahead of schedule. Perry has gone to great lengths to prove her upcoming album, Prism, is a departure from her Teenage Dream era. Does she deliver? I would say so.

As promised, it’s a “more mature” sound yet still very radio-friendly. It’s anthemic but more subtle with its mid-tempo foot-stomping beat. The Max Martin/Dr. Luke co-production definitely soars. Give it a listen below. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the accompanying visual.
