Taylor Swift has said she is releasing a new single and music video called “ME!” on Friday that is about “embracing your individuality and really celebrating it”.
In an interview with Robin Roberts on Thursday — during the 2019 NFL Draft on ABC — the pop star said the song features Brendon Urie of Panic! Of The Disco.
“I think that with a pop song we have the ability to get melodies stuck in people’s heads and I just want it to be one that makes (people) feel better about themselves,” she said.
Swift has been teasing fans for weeks with clues about a new project. She surprised a few hundred fans on Thursday when she visited a mural she commissioned in Nashville.
Swift thanked the artist who created the mural in an Instagram post on Thursday.
She also thanked her fans for showing up, saying: “I’ve never been more proud of your FBI level detective skills.”
“The fans are amazing. I can’t believe how dedicated they are,” Swift told Roberts.
“I can’t believe how much they care — so it makes it more fun more for me to create music, to create music videos.”
Swift’s last album, Reputation, was released in 2017.
