Taylor Swift is single-handedly saving pop music in 2017. The 27-year-old first sent top 40 radio into a tizzy in August when she released “Look What You Made Me Do,” a slinky techno banger that’s arguably her darkest effort to date. She followed this up with “…Ready For It?,” a lighter, more summery track with rapped verses and an incredibly uplifting chorus. But that was more than a month ago, and pop has turned back into a dry, depressing wasteland. Where are the jams? Where are the anthems?
Music lovers have been stalking Taylor’s social media channels for weeks, waiting for the moment when she announces the next song off her album, Reputation, due out November 10. They know she’s the only one who can deliver the goods.
And she finally has with a new, insanely catchy track off Reputation called “Gorgeous.” It’s exactly the kind of fizzy, delightful tune we need in these bop-less times. Listen, below:
She first teased “Gorgeous” on Instagram Thursday afternoon. “Available everywhere midnight tonight Eastern,” she wrote, along with a five-second snippet of the track (which, oddly, features a baby saying the word “gorgeous”).
Several diehard fans who’ve attended Taylor’s Reputation secret listening sessions say “Gorgeous” is one of the best songs on the album. Some flat-out think it’s the best. Here’s are just some of the reactions we found on Twitter.
SO THE SECRET SESSIONER SAY THAT #GORGEOUS IS THE BEST SONG FROM THE ALBUM AH OMGGG

Sonically, “Gorgeous” is right on par with “Look What You Made Me Do” and “…Ready For It?” It’s electronic and poppy, but slightly left of center—pushing the genre forward in unexpected, but very satisfying, ways. After listening to it, we’re more than confident that Reputation will be one hell of a ride.
