Stay calm, everyone!!! Taylor Swift has been teasing an unknown countdown for weeks, with a mystery clock on her website ticking away the days until April 26. Well, that day is finally here and T. Swift dropped a new song called “ME!” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco, AND we get a music video, too.

WELL GUYS 4.26 is gonna be here in a few hours and my new song “ME!” featuring the extraordinarily talented and awesome @brendonurie of @panicatthedisco will be out tonight at midnight eastern. In other exciting news, the VIDEO will be out then too and I can’t wait to watch live with you (and answer some questions) as it premieres on @YouTube 🎥Click the link in my bio and I’ll meet you there a little later!! 😺
The song is lighthearted and carefree, the follow-up to 1989 that we’ve all been waiting for ever since that dark Reputation era, even returning to her old style of lyrics about getting with the guy who all the girls want, and then apologizing for turning psycho on him. What is truly groundbreaking is that Swiftie strays from her signature red lip and paints that pout pink.
The video looks like a Target commercial in all its pastel, flowery glory, and if you don’t agree, then please explain all the women in cotton candy-colored lady suits dancing in circles with pocketbooks. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for?
