Taylor Swift Name-Checks GLAAD In New Pride Anthem

Taylor Swift Name-Checks GLAAD In New Pride Anthem

Here's everything we know so far. After Taylor revealed that her new song is called "You Need To Calm Down", the singer's fans started telling Lindsay to do the same. At The Disco and co-written by New Zealand's Joel Little.

As if on cue, Instagram went down immediately after Swift's announcement, and fans had something to say about that. It's unclear whether the two are related, but Swifties are claiming credit. Taylor will officially release the "You Need to Calm Down" music video on Monday (June 17) live on Good Morning America and you definitely won't wanna miss it! And at midnight, she released the record's second single, "You Need to Calm Down".

"Lover" will also feature Swift's previous single, "Me!" which Deseret News reports features Panic!

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

"Lover", her seventh full-length release, is coming out August 23.

"I think the idea of something being romantic - it doesn't have to be a happy song", she said. A lot when you're dealing with Swift, who has become the queen of dropping easter eggs this year. "I think it just looks at these things with a very romantic gaze". "You Need to Calm Down" is the flawless Pride anthem, and we're thrilled to see Taylor standing with the LGBTQ community to promote inclusivity, equality, and acceptance this Pride month".

Lover will be released in four deluxe versions, each containing different music.

The special edition albums also include; posters, "exclusive content", blank journal pages and a lyric book.

Swift responded to the Instagram post with 13 emoji hearts. And not just simply thematically, like it's all love songs or something. "And a caption on one of Lindsay's studio pics included the hashtag "#ME", which was the title of Taylor's first single from Lover. "She brings whimsy, imagination and romance to her clothes".

Swift also released a colourful lyric video to match the new song on YouTube late Thursday - appropriately during Pride Month.
