When she’s not calling for an apology from Taylor Swift and gifting Lady Gaga with some “Perfect Illusion” promo, Katy Perry is tantalizing fans with the still-unannounced follow-up to 2013’s Prism. There’s no new album on the horizon so far as we know, but it’s looking likely that Perry will return to the road next year.

On Sunday, a fan foolishly called out Perry for the lack of sustained success from “Rise,” her recent Olympics anthem. Perry viewed the attack as an opportunity to hint at her 2017 return:

Perry toured behind Prism—which added two more No. 1 hits to the pop star’s impressive collection—from May 2014 through October 2015, and has taken 2016 off aside from “Rise.” She also performed at the Super Bowl halftime show in 2015.

Earlier this year, Perry confirmed that she was working on new music, but did not set a timeline for its release. Her last performance came at the Democratic National Convention, in support of Hillary Clinton.
