Taylor Swift’s new era is real and is here! The singer announced yesterday that her new album “Lover” will be out on August 23rd and the pre-sale is already open! She also released a brand new song this Friday, “You Need To Calm Down”, which is the successor from first single “ME!”, her collaboration with Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie.
Taylor defined her new record as a very “romantic” one. “This album, in tone, it’s very romantic and not just simply thematically, like it’s all love songs or something. I think the idea of something being romantic, it doesn’t have to be a happy song. I think you can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through a conflict or dealing with things in your life. I think it just kind of looks at those things with a very romantic gaze,” she said.
“You Need To Calm Down” is available on all streaming platforms and the video will come out on Monday 17th, according to Taylor Swift. Listen below:
