Katy Perry is sharing another glimpse of her upcoming single “Woman’s World.” On Tuesday, the singer shared a teaser of the music video, which sees Perry dressed as Rosie the Riveter in what seems to be a women-empowering single.

“Celebrate,” sings Perry. “We ain’t going away.”

The video splices clips of Perry pouring “Whiskey for Women” into her mouth, and playing with a bedazzled hammer while wearing a toolbelt and Timberland workboot-inspired heels. Another scene flashes a close-up of Perry’s cleavage under a sparkly American Flag top she shared on Fourth of July. The visual ends with a giant anchor falling on Perry’s head and crushing her.

Shortly after the visual teaser, Perry shared a photo of herself in a futuristic mermaid outfit exiting a portal: “Sleep tight, for tomorrow, the portal opens,” she captioned the post. The day before, Perry shared a visual of a deflated version of herself from the music video as she revealed that the video for the track will drop at 7 p.m. ET on July 11.

Late last month, Perry revealed the lyrics to her new song by wearing a red dress with a 500-foot train that revealed all the words to the song. “Sexy, confident/So intelligent/She is heaven-sent/So soft, so strong,” read the lyrics. “She’s a winner/Champion/ Superhuman/Number one.”

During her trip to Paris, which involved Perry walking the runway at Vogue World, the singer was spotted greeting fans as she told them she’d be “coming back” to France for her next tour.

The new video will arrive several weeks after Rolling Stone broke the news that Perry reconnected with Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Stargate (who helped make hits on her albums Teenage Dream and Prism) for her forthcoming album. “Katy knew exactly the album she wanted to make and put together the team to make it happen,” a Capitol Records source told Rolling Stone at the time.

The news of Perry collaborating with Luke arrives a year after the producer settled his defamation lawsuit with singer Kesha, who accused him of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse years prior. Last June, Kesha said that “only God knows what happened” on the night she claimed she was raped, while Luke maintained his innocence.
