Taylor Swift announces 7th album 'Lover'

New York (Web Desk): Taylor Swift on Thursday released a new tune called 'You Need to Calm Down,' where she addresses her own haters but also calls out those who attack the LGBTQ community.


At one point on the beat-laden track, Swift sings: “And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate/’Cause shade never made anybody less gay.”

At another point she sings: “You need to just stop, like can you just not step on his gown?”

'You Need to Calm Down' is the second single from Lover, to be released on August 23. The song is the follow-up to 'ME!,' which featured Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The pop star also released a colorful lyric video to match the new song on YouTube late Thursday — appropriately during Pride Month. A music video will be released Monday.
