Lil Nas X has shared a snippet of a new song on social media.

The ‘Old Town Road' rap sensation took to Twitter to share 38 seconds of the track, which is seemingly called ‘Call Me By Your Name', as he captioned the video of himself lip-syncing along to the tune just that.

He simply wrote: “Call Me by Your Name”, and added the telephone and love heart exclamation mark emojis.

The 21-year-old star – who came out in July 2019 – talks about a boy he's talking to for the first time on the song, which is seemingly a homage to the Timotheé Chalamet and Armie Hammer film.

That Time Helen Mirren Chased Away An Angry Bear

Dame Helen Mirren chased away an angry bear.

The Queen star saw the North American black bear wander into the garden of her Lake Tahoe home and she quickly managed to send it away.

Of the encounter with the animal – which can grow to 6ft tall and weigh 30 stone – she told Marc Maron‘s WTF podcast:

”I saw a bear the other day! A great big black bear came by and stole all my bird food. I went out and I said, ‘Bad bear! Bad, naughty bear! Very naughty bear!' He sort of looked at me and lumbered off. He was a big black bear. Funnily enough, I was just reading a book – a little pamphlet – about wildlife up here. They were saying what to do if you encounter a bear – if it's looking aggressively at you and hunching its back and looking like it's about to charge, they said you make yourself look as big as possible, if you can grab a stick, make yourself look big. And then it literally said, ‘And then shout: Bad bear! Bad bear!”'
