Check out Taylor Swift's pastel perfect new track 'You Need To Calm Down'

Affix your pop pants, Dear Reader. Taylor Swift has announced her seventh studio album and dropped a pastel perfect second cut from it.

Titled 'Lover', the follow-up to 'reputation' is set to land on 23rd August, and is previewed by fresh track 'You Need To Calm Down'. It comes on the heels of the album's first taster, 'ME!', which featured Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie.

Explaining the new song in a video posted by Beats 1, Swiftie revealed: “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.’”

So there we go.

'Lover' is a gargantuan 18 tracks in length, with (by the looks of the Apple Music listing for the record) both the tracks currently available coming 'quite late' in the running order - a good sign if you're expecting the bangers to be front loaded.

You can check out 'You Need To Calm Down' below.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
