Swift teased the song's release on her Instagram account Thursday with a series of hot pink images, one of which featured the word "gorgeous" in the font she has been using since announcing Reputation.

Like "Enchanted" (from 2010's "Speak Now"), "Gorgeous" is a sweet song about becoming besotted to the point of shyness while circling an object of desire at a social gathering.

"Look What You Made Me Do" quickly topped the charts and its accompanying music video broke YouTube's record for most views in the first 24 hours.

Available for preorder now, Reputation will be available on November 10.


The language is alternately self-mockingly dramatic - "You ruin my life by not being mine" - and whimsically frisky: "I can't say anything to your face, because look at your face".

"You're so gorgeous/ I can't say anything to your face/ 'Cause look at your face/ And I'm so furious/ At you for making me feel this way/ But what can I say?/ You're gorgeous", Taylor sings on the track. "You're so cool, it makes me hate you so much (I hate you so much)". But hey, maybe third time's a charm?

That said, a lot of fans think the song is about Taylor's rumored boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Taylor Swift releases a new promotional single entitled "Gorgeous"; yet another infectious pop tune that we will be singing forever, or at least until her next song comes out.
