Katy Perry walks on the wild side in her new video for "Roar." The video is the first visual from her highly-anticipated album Prism, arriving this October.

Where Does Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" Rank on Rolling Stone's 50 Best Songs of 2010?

The clip opens with Perry and a selfie-taking explorer navigating through the jungle following a plane crash. He's mauled by a tiger, leaving Perry to fend for herself amongst the beasts of the wild. She quickly takes to her new environment, and summons a swarm of fireflies, brushes an alligator's teeth and makes a spear fashioned from the heel of a black pump. The video reaches its apex when Perry has a face-to-face standoff with a tiger and emerges as the alpha. It's the type of survival-skills you'd expect from the pop star.

In related Katy Perry Prism news, the singer droped by GMA this morning and revealed the cover art -- a washed out photo of her standing in a sunflower field.

Prism is due out October 22nd.
