We finally have a release date and title for Katy Perry's upcoming album!

The "Firework" singer is proving that it's a "Woman's World" as she gears up to release her new album later this year, revealing in an Instagram post on Wednesday (July 10) that the album is called 143 and will be released in September. The message "143" was widely used with pagers in the '90s and in early texting as a shorthand for saying "I love you," according to AirDroid.com.

In a press statement, Perry said she "set out to create a bold, exuberant, celebratory dance-pop album with the symbolic 143 numerical expression of love as a throughline message," per Pitchfork.

Perry's announcement, which features a snippet of her soon-to-be-released lead single "Woman's World," also included the album's stunning cover art showcasing an ethereal Perry floating amid a swirl of vivid colors, hair blowing in the wind and nearly naked body on display behind a clear bodice. The post also showed off all the variations in which 143 will be available, from a pink and signed gray vinyl variants to CDs and cassettes.

The post even got some love from Perry's fiancé Orlando Bloom, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star leaving three fire emojis in the comments.

Perry's upcoming album 143 drops September 20. The first single, "Woman's World," will be available Thursday, July 11.
