“Roar” was scheduled to be released on Monday, August 12, but leaked to the internet Saturday, reports Rolling Stone. Rolling Stone comments: “With its easy poppy beat and repeated refrains … the lead single strikes a determined note for the new album.”

Ryan Shaffar ‏tweeted: “Another major hit. … Just heard #roar for the first time and feel so empowered.”
