It’s been almost four years since Perry released “Smile,” which came out in August 2020. That album produced a handful of singles including “Daisies” and the title track, and became her weakest-performing album in years with a debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

In the time since “Smile,” Perry descended on Las Vegas for her Play residency, which ran from 2021 to 2023. The final performance, which took place last November, teased her incoming era, with the message “See you next year” flashing on a screen at its conclusion.

Perry has kept busy outside of music with a stint as a judge on “American Idol” for seven seasons. In February, she announced that the 22nd season would be her last, and she finished her stint on the show in May. In September, she sold her catalog for $255 million to Litmus Music, the Carlyle-backed company that launched in 2022 and also purchased Keith Urban’s rights to his master recordings.
