Taylor Swift perfoms onstage during the Formula 1 USGP

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.

"Gorgeous" is the third song from Swift's upcoming album, "Reputation", after "Look What You Made Me Do" and 'Ready For It? Ready for It?" It doesn't even involve the now trendy trick of combining electronic and acoustic instruments: "If you're looking for an "organic" element in the arrangement, you might have to settle for that split second pause between the verse and chorus, when we get what sounds suspiciously like... a triangle solo. Watch the "Gorgeous" lyric video below.

"Look What You Made Me Do" spent two consecutive weeks at #1 in Australia but has now sunk to #19 on the ARIA Charts, sandwiched between French Montana and Demi Lovato.

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

Later on, Swift belts out: "You make me so happy it turns back to sad/ There's nothing I hate more than what I can't have". And I got a boyfriend, he's older than us. Or, maybe this time around, she's stopped writing autobiographically.

On the heels of her midnight drop, "Gorgeous", the songstress has fans around the world once again wondering-who is Taylor singing about? One such fan has since taken to social media and had their assurance that Swift herself says the song is about Alwyn shared several times. With an upbeat chorus about falling for a guy with "ocean blue eyes", we can't help but assume the song is about Swift's new beau, British actor Joe Alwyn (or perhaps ex-boyfriend Tom Hiddleston).
