On Wednesday, K Pizzle (why does no-one call her that?) tweeted the announcement to say: 'Leave your bubble (and bring your headphones)', followed by a link to a snippet of her new song.

She had already been Intagramming about the new single throughout the day but, in a video later uploaded to Twitter, the songstress posted a clip of her inserting head phones into a glitter ball, debuting manicured nails with letters that read, 'find me'.

PLOT TWIST:

In another post, the singer posted a map with a link, instructing her fans where to go to listen to her new tune from disco balls-come-speakers placed across the world, complete with head phone jacks.

Following Perry's post, Kenzie Bryant from Vanity Fair popped down to one of the disco balls at a park in Brooklyn, New York and found a mere 'handful' of people at the installment.

To be specific, six people in one hour.

At least it meant Perry's hardcore fan base got a lot of alone time with a snippet of the track.

However, fans of the Californian-born star didn't need to wait long to hear the full song as it came out today, availably to stream at your leisure, with or without a glitter ball.

But, Perry shouldn't get herself down – after all, it was a weekday.

Katy, give us some notice next time and we'll be sure to call in sick in preparation for your next big reveal.
