Here's another one in the basket: Katy Perry's fifth studio album, Witness, is finally here. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2013's Prism is out, and fans can download the album on iTunes here. You can also stream it on Apple Music here and on Spotify here.

Perry has already given fans a taste with the album's first few singles, including "Chained to the Rhythm," "Bon Appétit" and "Swish Swish" featuring Nicki Minaj.

Perry told Billboard the album was a result of growing as an artist and going from her 20s to her 30s. She wanted to reflect that in her music on Witness, which she described as "purposeful pop ... 360-degree liberation: mental liberation, sexual liberation, negative liberation, spiritual liberation," Perry said.

Part of being liberated is finally releasing her clapback to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood." Their ongoing feud was reignited when Perry dropped "Swish Swish," with many on the internet assuming the track was about the pop starlet. In addressing the rumors, Perry slyly said the song was about overcoming bullies.

However, in her "Carpool Karaoke" segment with James Corden, Perry did reveal her side of what really went down between her and Swift.

"She started it and it's time for her to finish it," Perry said, confirming the disagreement was over backing dancers. Perry also said she attempted to speak with Swift about the issue, but Swift shut her down.
