Just a day after Katy Perry had her KatyCats grinning by revealing the circus-themed cover art for her upcoming album Smile, the pop star unveiled the title track on Friday (July 10).

"I gotta say it's really been a while / But now I've got back that smile," she sings in the poppy, uplifting hook.

"I wrote the title track from the album when I was coming through one of the darkest periods of my life and had lost my smile. This whole album is my journey towards the light - with stories of resilience, hope, and love," she wrote of the song on Twitter.

Listen to "Smile" below. KP5 is out Aug. 14.
