Katy Perry has announced her upcoming album will be titled Witness and will be released on June 9.

Perry has also announced an extensive tour of North America to promote the release.

The singer's website says Perry's first tour since 2015 begins on September 7 in Columbus, Ohio, and has dates listed through to February 5, 2018. Anyone who buys a ticket will receive a copy of the album.

Two singles have been released from Witness so far: Chained to the Rhythm and Bon Appetit.

Perry hinted at the album's name earlier this month by wearing a headpiece that spelled out the word Witness on the red carpet at the Met Gala.
