Taylor Swift: New Single 'You Need to Calm Down' Drops Tonight

Taylor Swift: New Single 'You Need to Calm Down' Drops Tonight

Come verse 2, she's getting socially conscious in a way that will surprise only anyone who slept through the celebrity news cycle in the first two days of Pride Month, "Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?" she asks, echoing the last phrase for good measure. "I think it just looks at these things with a very romantic gaze". Swift says she wanted to release the video after the single because "there's a lot going on in the video, so I wanted that to be a separate discovery".

The song starts out with Swift seeming to address someone who's been talking smack about her, behind her back.

In an Instagram Live, Swift shared Thursday that "Lover" is available for preorder now and will be released on August 23.

As promised, Taylor Swift kicked off her Friday, and ours, with some new music.

Taylor caused mass pandemonium on Thursday (June 13) with the announcement of her seventh studio album, Lover, so much so that it pretty much was the reason Instagram legit BROKE - the power of Taylor Swift everyone!

The album will have 18 tracks, she added, saying, "That's more than I've had on an album before". "You should respond", Lohan wrote on the stream without any context whatsoever. The singer said that it would be released on 23 August.

"I wanted you to hear the song first, then see the video".

Fans had long-speculated the album's title was Lover, after Swift said it was included as an easter egg somewhere in the candy-coated music video for 'ME!', which features Brendon Urie of Panic! Swift also announced that Lover will coincide with a collaboration with the designer, but she didn't get into specific details yet. Not just simply thematically, like it's all love songs or something.

Swift leaked the highly anticipated news - and her new rainbow-drenched cover art - on Twitter and Instagram posts and an Instagram Live chat on Thursday.

She had big, huge exciting news for Swift Nation.
