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!! 😺
So what’s the inspiration for her new single? Taylor said the song is about “embracing your individuality and really owning it.” She explained, “with a pop song, we have the ability to get a melody stuck in people’s heads and I just want it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves.” Swifties have been patiently waiting for her follow-up album to Reputation, which she dropped in 2017, and much to the delight of fans, we now have a new song and music video to enjoy!
Before spilling the tea, Taylor posed for photos in front of a butterfly mural, created by interactive street artist Kelsey Montague and she also took to Instagram Stories to give fans more clues.
“OK so we’ve commissioned this butterfly mural to be painted on a wall in Nashville and put clues about the song and the new music in the mural,” Taylor said. “So I’m going to go show up. The butterfly mural is painted by Kelsey Montague who painted one of my favorite murals in New York.”
Taylor took to Instagram on April 25 and revealed that she thrilled about collaborating with the “extraordinarily talented and awesome” Brendon and we see why! BRB, just hitting that repeat button.
