Katy Perry might be a tease, but at least she's a merciful one. After she overhauled her social media platforms with a new promo pic on Tuesday, aptly captioned "new life who dis," fans went into a tizzy over the prospect of new music. Today, she not only gives a release date, she gives a brief clip, too. The best part? It's coming this Friday (Feb 10).

Perry hasn't officially confirmed the title of the track, but it's reportedly called "Chained to the Rhythm," which perfectly matches the new snippet. In it, Perry can be seen walking on pavement with a big disco ball chained to her ankle. (It seems she went for the literal interpretation.) While pop doesn't have to be political, it seems possible that this new track from Perry will be considering her vocal support of Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign season and serious opposition to the new administration.

UPDATE: Perry has confirmed the track title today on Twitter with #CHAINEDTOTHERHYTHM
