Just as she announced on Wednesday (August 23), Taylor Swift is in full comeback mode with the release of "Look What You Made Me Do," the lead single off her sixth studio album, reputation, which is set to drop November 10.
On the almost-four minute track, "Look What You Made Me Do" hears the star treading into slinky pop territory as she calls out someone that has seriously tried to cross her or maybe it's a whole lot of people. After a reference to a "tilted stage" in the opening verse, you can probably guess that it's a hit at Kanye West and his "Saint Pablo Tour" stage set-up. Meanwhile, certain Swifties claim they can hear Katy Perry's name during a clever vocal overlay during the second verse of the song. "I don't trust nobody and nobody trusts me/ I'll be the actress starring in your bad dreams," she sings during the bridge, before the ultimate revelation. "I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now," she playfully teases. "Why? Oh, because she's dead!"
If "Shake It Off" was Taylor hitting back in the most polite way possible, "Look What You Made Me Do" hears the star at her most ferocious, letting listeners know that there is much more to her than meets the eye. While "Look What You Made Me Do" is currently available for download on iTunes, reputation is also up for pre-order.
Prior to the announcement of the song, Team Taylor kept all details surrounding the track under lock and key. Still, that didn't mean that her "Bad Blood" video collaborator Joseph Kahn didn't try and keep Swifties at bay with some tempting messages via Twitter. "It's honestly quite shocking how good of a writer @taylorswift13 is," he tweeted on Thursday afternoon.
Expect to see an exclusive clip for the music video in just a matter of hours. On Thursday (August 24), Good Morning America teased that they'd share a bit of the track's music video during their Friday broadcast, so expect even more Taylor later in the day.
