Taylor Swift Shares New Song ‘You Need to Calm Down’ Off Upcoming Album ‘Lover’

It was an exciting day for Taylor Swift fans.

The singer-songwriter took to Instagram Live on Thursday to reveal the title and cover art of her seventh studio album, Lover.

“It’s very romantic and not just simply fanatically like it’s all love songs or something,” she said about the 18-track project. “I think that romance can be found in loneliness or sadness or going through conflicts in your life. [The album] just looks at things in a romantic gaze.”

But that wasn’t all. Swift also confirmed she would release the album’s second single, “You Need to Calm Down,” tonight.

“So a lot of people, I saw, had a theory regarding the idea of ‘Calm etc. etc.,” she said during the broadcast. “I can confirm that I have a new single tonight coming out tonight at midnight. It’s called, ‘You Need to Calm Down.’ I’m so excited for you to hear it.”

Swift also revealed the song would be accompanied by a video. But, unfortunately for Swifties, it won’t premiere until June 17 on Good Morning America.

Until then, fans can stream “You Need to Calm Down” on major platforms. Lover—the follow-up to 2017’s Reputation—is set to drop Aug. 23 and is available for pre-order now.
