Witness este al cincilea album de studio al cântăreței americane Katy Perry. A fost lansat pe 9 iunie 2017, de către Capitol Records. Pentru album, Perry a lucrat cu numeroși producători, printre care Jeff Bhasker, Mark Crew, Duke Dumont, Jack Garratt, Oscar Holter, Illangelo, Ilya, Max Martin, Ali Payami și Shellback. Witness este un album electropop care încorporează elemente de dans și EDM, cu versuri despre auto-împuternicire și feminism. Perry a descris albumul ca fiind unul al „eliberarii” și „pop-ului intenționat”.Cinci single-uri au ajutat albumul, dintre care, trei au fost lansate înainte de album și unul a ajuns în top-zece Billboard Hot 100: single-ul principal, "Chained to the Rhythm", cu Skip Marley, a ajuns pe numărul 4 în Hot100. „Bon Appétit” cu Migos a atins numărul 59, în timp ce „Swish Swish” cu Nicki Minaj a ajuns pe numărul 46. „Save as Draft” și „Hey Hey Hey” au fost lansate ca single-uri ulterioare pe 26 iunie 2017 și 12 ianuarie 2018. Pentru a susține lansarea albumului, Perry s-a difuzat într-un stream de YouTube de patru zile, intitulat Katy Perry Live: Witness World Wide. La lansare, Witness a primit recenzii în general mixte de la critici de muzică, care au criticat producția și lirismul; cu toate acestea, puțini comentatori au fost favorabili față de unele piese „esențiale”, dar au descris restul drept „fillers”. Vânzând 180.000 de unități echivalente de album în prima săptămână, Witness a debutat în topul Billboard 200 din SUA pe primul loc, devenind cel de-al treilea album de top al lui din Perry. Albumul a fost de asemenea în topul clasamentelor din Canada și Spania, atingând numărul doi în Australia, Coreea de Sud, Mexic și Noua Zeelandă și în primele cinci locuri din alte nouă teritorii. Pentru a promova albumul, Perry a pornit în cel de-al patrulea turneu de concert, Witness: The Tour. Înainte de lansarea albumului, Perry nu a lansat niciun material nou în patru ani, cu excepția imnului Jocurilor Olimpice de vară din 2016, „Rise”. După ce a lansat Prism (2013) și a făcut turnee în 2014-2015, Perry a luat o pauză pentru a-și proteja sănătatea mentală și pentru a reveni mai târziu. Perry a decis să-și părăsească personajul pe scenă și să-și îmbrățișeze propriul ei caracter Katheryn Hudson, numele ei adevărat. Drept urmare, și-a retras părul lung și întunecat pentru o tunsoare scurtă pixie și și-a schimbat culoarea părului în blond.
