On Independence Day, the 39-year-old pop star teased the upcoming arrival of her comeback single “Woman’s World” by sharing a snap from a recent patriotic photo shoot. In the picture, she sports a strappy leotard with red, white and blue sparkles forming an American Flag pattern on the chest.

With a red bandana in her hair, she flexes her right bicep like a modern-day Rosie the Riveter. “BB UR A FIREWORK 🎆,” the singer captioned the post, a nod to her 2010 smash “Firework,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks.

“and speaking of work, WOMAN’S WORLD IS GOING TO WORK IN ONE WEEK,” she added. “HAPPY 4TH 🇺🇸”

As Perry mentioned, “Woman’s World” arrives July 11. The track marks her first proper release since 2020’s Smile, which reached No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

The recently retired American Idol judge first announced the track mid-June, with Perry sharing its cover art — a campy photo of her wearing a white bikini and robotic Pegasus legs — and a snippet of the dance-pop anthem. “Sexy, confident, so intelligent/ She is heaven-sent, so soft, so strong,” she sings in the clip over a rippling electronic drum beat.

Later that month, Perry unveiled even more of the song’s lyrics by wearing a dress with a seemingly endless train to Paris Fashion Week. “She’s a winner, champion/ Superhuman, number one/ She’s a sister, she’s mother,” read words printed on the fabric. “Open your eyes, just look around and you’ll discover/ You know/ It’s a woman’s world and you’re lucky to be living in it.”
