Also in the song, Taylor doesn't forget to stand up for her fellow women in the industry and call out anyone who tries to pit her against her peers. Swift also confirmed that her next single, "You Need to Calm Down", will be released Friday at midnight ET (that's Thursday 9 p.m. PT for all you West Coasters!).

The Grammy victor, 29, told fans all the need-to-know details about her seventh album, called Lover, on Instagram Live on Thursday. In an Instagram post, she showcased Lover's cover art, featuring a shot by photographer Valheria Rocha. At The Disco and co-written by New Zealand's Joel Little.

"I wanted you to hear the song first and then see the video because the video is very worth the wait", she said of "You Need to Calm Down" and its visuals. It's unclear whether the two are related, but Swifties are claiming credit. The music video will be released on Good Morning America on June 17, but don't worry because it'll be uploaded on YouTube right after.

So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh You need to calm down, you're being too loud And I'm just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh You need to just stop, like can you just not step on my gown?

Still, Xi has also watched as Trump repeatedly escalated a trade war despite hailing a personal friendship between the two men. His overall aim, the Republican said, is to ensure that China never overtakes the United States as the world's top economy.

Sitting just under three minutes, the single is a markedly less saccharine experience than her last single "ME!"

She wrote: "Lover, album out August 23". A lot when you're dealing with Swift, who has become the queen of dropping easter eggs this year. "You can find romance in loneliness or sadness or going through things in your life... it just looks at those things through a romantic gaze".

Lover will be released in four deluxe versions, each containing different music. "It's a whole thing", Swift said on Instagram.

The word "lover" was also hidden in the background of the same video clip - which many dedicated fans spotted and theorised online that it was possibly the album's title.
