Perry posted a disco-tinged clip from her single on Instagram last night (February 7). She has since shared a clip of herself plugging a pair of headphones into a giant disco ball, and a map showing fans where they can find these disco ball listening posts.
The map shows just one UK location: London’s Leicester Square. Fans are now sharing pictures of themselves – and lyrics from the single – on Twitter using the hashtag #ChainedToTheRhythm.

Perry hasn’t confirmed that the single is called ‘Chained To The Rhythm’, but the use of this hashtag suggests it is most probably the title.
Perry will presumably be performing the single live for the first time at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. She was added to the Grammy bill yesterday, joining a performers’ line-up that includes Adele, Metallica and Lady Gaga, and Daft Punk and The Weekend.
Her last album, ‘Prism’, came out in 2013 and featured the hit singles ‘Roar’, ‘Dark Horse’ and ‘Unconditionally’. She also released a new song called ‘Rise’ for last summer’s Olympic Games.
