Katy Perry performed “Swish Swish” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is off her upcoming album, Witness, due out on June 9. See the video below of Perry’s performance of “Swish Swish” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the third time Perry has been the musical guest on “SNL.” She first performed on the sketch comedy show in 2010 when Amy Poehler was the host. And Perry returned three years later to sing on an episode hosted by Bruce Willis. She was, however, on “Saturday Night Live” another time as the program’s host in 2011, but left the musical performances to Robyn.

While appearing on Friday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the singer said the song is really “a great anthem for whenever anyone is trying to hold you down or bully you.” She added, “‘Swish’ represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.” Perry noted her album Witness is all about liberation. She said of the two previously released tracks, “‘Chained To The Rhythm’ was this political liberation. ‘Bon Appetit’ was a sexual liberation.”

In support of Witness, Perry will kick off a North American tour, beginning in Columbus on September 7. The musician will then perform through February in a slew of major cities, including New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. But first, Perry heads to the UK to headline Radio 1’s Big Weekend concert next weekend. She’ll also perform a few weeks later at the Glastonbury Festival.

Only the audio has been released for “Swish Swish.” Still, the song has already been listened to more than 6 million times to date on YouTube. Check out the video below of Perry’s performance of “Swish Swish” on “SNL.” NOTE: The video is no longer available.
