Taylor Swift’s New Single Is Called ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ [LISTEN]
Taylor Swift has officially revealed her newest single, and it's called ... "Look What You Made Me Do." As promised, the singer shared the track late Thursday night (Aug. 24).
"Look What You Made Me Do" is the first single from Swift's upcoming new album, Reputation; the record is due out on Nov. 10. The song is, as expected, pop, with various pulsing beats switching up as the song moves from verse to chorus and back.
"I don't like your little games / Don't like your tilted stage / The role you made me play / Of the fool / No, I don't like you," Swift sings in the first verse of "Look What You Made Me Do. "I don't like your perfect crime / How you laugh when you lie / You said the gun was mine / Isn't cool / No, I don't like you."

Swift last released a new album, 1989, in 2014; that project was her first completely pop album, after starting her career as a country artist. The record became the best-selling album of 2014, and the fastest-selling record in more than 10 years.
In June, Swift’s back catalog of music returned to streaming platforms. She originally removed her music from such outlets in 2014.
Most recently, Swift won a public court battle vs. Denver radio DJ David Mueller, whom she accused of assaulting her during a meet and greet in 2013; a jury unanimous determined that Mueller groped Swift during that encounter. Mueller originally sued Swift in late 2015, claiming that he was unjustly fired from his job as a radio personality for KYGO-FM and also lost prospective business opportunities because of the allegations. A month later, Swift filed her own countersuit, saying that Mueller “intentionally reached under her skirt and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission.”
Also as part of the lawsuit ruling, the jury found that Swift’s mother Andrea and her radio rep, Frank Bell, did not interfere with Mueller’s employment at KYGO. The jury awarded Swift the symbolic $1 she asked for in her countersuit; they awarded Mueller nothing.
