Taylor Swift Drops New Single 'You Need to Calm Down' -- Listen Now!


In the upbeat single, Swift rails against social media haters and internet feuds, while at the same time seemingly throwing a little shade of her own with the lyric, "Snakes and stones never broke my bones."


However, it ultimately feels like a rallying cry for civility in an age of rage and trolling, all set to a catchy beat that will likely make it a favorite for radio play.


"I’ve observed a lot of different people in our society who put so much energy and effort into negativity and it made me feel like, ‘you need to just calm down,'" Swift reflected.


The song is the second single off of Swift's upcoming album, Lover , which she officially announced earlier in the day after months of fan speculation.


Of her seventh studio offering, which drops on Aug. 23, Swift teased that the album -- which will include 18 tracks and a slew of special perks available on four unique Target editions -- is "very romantic."


And while fans can hear the new song now, the "You Need to Calm Down" music video won't drop until Monday, June 17, during Good Morning America .
