After a long two months,  Taylor Swift's  finally released her new single, You Need To Calm Down, just in time for Pride month. The song includes lyrics like "control your urges to scream about all the people you hate 'cause shade never made anybody less gay." 

She also revealed the name of her album, Lover, which will be released August 23. Why that date? Swift informed her fans that August is the eighth month, and if you add 8+2+3 you get 13 -- her favorite number.

You Need To Calm Down is now available to stream and buy, and we're sure it will soon break streaming records.

So, Swift fans, get your phones and laptops out -- you can listen to her new song using any of these music streaming apps.


Listen to You Need To Calm Down here on YouTube.


Fans can listen to You Need To Calm Down on Spotify. Tip: If you don't have Spotify Premium, you can add the song to a playlist and listen to it on repeat.
