Pop star Katy Perry announced the official coming of her new album, Prism, earlier this week with banner-like golden trucks in Los Angeles and details on the record’s first single.

The singer has been through quite a bit since 2010’s Teenage Dreams: a divorce, multiple hair color changes and falling in love with John Mayer. So, it seems mighty appropriate that “Roar!” is the title of her first single. She’s rumored to have collaborated with artists like songstress Sia and producer Dr. Luke; also she’s considering taking musical influence from the ‘90s.

The album will be released on October 22
