New Taylor Swift song 'Gorgeous' drops with '80s and '90s inspiration

It isn't long before we're given the full taste of Taylor Swift's next outing, with Reputation set for release on November 10.

Swift's new album is emerging as a well-appreciated experiment, presenting quite a different flavour from her previous country songs and past detours.

Whereas lead single "Look What You Made Me Do" polarized the internet with its Jack Antonoff-assisted, Right Said Fred-licensing murder mystery, newbie "Gorgeous" is a home run. And I got a boyfriend, he's older than us.

The song has been co-written and produced by Max Martin and Shellback, and comes alongside a lyric video.

"You're so gorgeous. I can't say anything to your face".

"Basically, Taylor made us all promise that if anyone made any accusations of who this is about, we tell them it is 100% about her boyfriend of one year", they wrote. The effervescence of the chorus melody makes it clear that we're not to take too seriously any of this being bewitched, bothered, and bewildered. She previewed the song during a Saturday night college football game over Labor Day Weekend, and it is widely speculated to be about the pop star's current beau, Joe Alwyn. But hey, maybe third time's a charm?

'Then there's the mention of "ocean blue eyes" (Alwyn's eyes are indeed blue).

Taylor Swift dropped her new song "Gorgeous" much to the surprise of her fans.

Swift kicks off the song with a reference to the subject's foreign accent.
