On Thursday (June 13), Taylor Swift went live on Instagram to tell fans that a brand-new song called “You Need to Calm Down” comes out at midnight ET, with a video to follow Monday on Good Morning America (“The video is very worth the wait,” Swift promises).
In addition to the new song, Swift also revealed the name, cover and release date for her much-anticipated seventh album: Lover will arrive on Aug. 23.
The 18-track album is “very romantic,” Swift told the hundreds of thousands of fans who tuned in to her Instagram Live — but don’t expect all love songs. “Not just simply thematically. … You can find romance in loneliness or sadness.”
In addition to the standard physical CD, there will also be four deluxe editions of Lover available via Target. Each of the four deluxe editions will include different content, Swift said.
