The ‘Daisies’ singer - who is currently expecting her first child with her fiancé Orlando Bloom - was supposed to release her upcoming record on August 14, but “due to unavoidable production delays” she has now been forced to push back the release date until August 28.
However, it wasn't all bad news - Perry announced she is hoping to connect with followers every Sunday up until Smile's release, or the arrival of her first child through a livestream series.
"To make this up to you, starting this Sunday and until the album drops (or until Babycat...whichever comes first) join me for SmileSundays!" she continued, "Every Sunday, time to be announced soon, I'm going to go on LIVE for 30 minutes or more and talk all things SMILE."
She promised fans they will see new merchandise, hear snippets from the album, and possibly some live sessions.
Perry added: "Thanks for being so flexible in this time... it's a wild one, for sure, but I hope the patience will be worth the wait!"
