Taylor Swift Will Release Her New Single “ME!” Tonight
UPDATE: The rumors were true. Taylor Swift is releasing a new song called “ME!” tonight, and it features Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie. That’s not all. The generous legend is also unveiling the official music video. Check out the announcement and single cover below.
It looks increasingly likely that we will get a new single from Taylor Swift on Friday (April 26). The 29-year-old has been teasing that date on her social media accounts for the last couple of weeks, along with a selection of pastel-colored images. Radio stations have now started adopting a similar color scheme and Hits Daily Double is reporting that Republic has started previewing the song to a select group of tastemakers in the media. (My invitation must have been lost in the mail).
According to HDD, unusual security measures are being taken against spoilers. “Programmers must listen to the track on headphones via a device that never leaves the possession of the label team,” the reveal. Not only that, but “[they] must sign an NDA enjoining them not only not to discuss the content of the song but to deny its very existence.” I’m very ready for Taylor’s new era. The soft and pretty color palette suggests a less abrasive approach than Reputation, and she is the undisputed queen of the zeitgeist-commanding lead single. Bring it on!
WELL GUYS it's almost midnight and my new song “ME!” featuring @brendonurie of @panicatthedisco will be out. In other news, the VIDEO will be out too and I can’t wait to watch live with you (and answer some questions) as it premieres on @YouTube 🎥😺 https://t.co/YImpUXvEVQ pic.twitter.com/lOy7biUgbA
