I think she's purposefully gotten the online gays / stans on the edge of their seats (this thread...) and a week or two of high-exposure promo should be more than enough to let her broader audience know she's back with an album considering her name recognition. A release this Friday or next would make sense. Or at least I fucking hope so as I need to know already if my stanning this era will have been worth it.
"Each ticket purchase for WITNESS: The Tour also includes a copy of her album, Witness."
I'm getting trauma flashbacks to the MDNA era.
