Taylor Swift releasing ‘Lover’ title track Friday; takes home Teen Choice Icon Award


Frank Micelotta/FOXSwifties rejoice! Taylor Swift says she's dropping the next track of her upcoming Lover album in just a few days.

Swift made the surprise announcement at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday night, where she won the first-ever Icon Award: a blue, purple, and pink surfboard decorated with photos of her three cats.

Swift gushed at the end of her speech, "I wanted to tell you guys tonight that on the 16th, on Friday, I have a new song called 'Lover' that is coming out, and I'm so excited!"

The title track will be the fourth single off Lover album. Swift previously released "Me" and "You Need to Calm Down," and "The Archer."

As for the rest of Taylor's Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech, she briefly touched upon political issues like equal pay and gender equality. She also fawned over the appearance of her award, saying it was a "a really proud moment" to see her fur babies on a Teen Choice award.
