Only days after surprisingly announcing a new album is on the way, Taylor Swift has this morning released the lyric video for the first single from it.
The first track off the album 'Reputation' is entitled 'Look What You Made Me Do'. It is co-written with the Bleachers singer Jack Antonoff, who also worked with Taylor Swift on her hit song ‘Out Of The Woods’.
But we noticed a very unlikely credit on the song... Right Said Fred! Taylor Swift has acknowledged on the song writing credits that the British band's hit song 'I'm Too Sexy' influenced the chorus of her new single.
The boys from Right Said Fred took to Twitter this morning to declare that they're tickled pink that their song released all the way back in 1991 influenced Taylor.

In the lyrics to the new song, she sings that the "old" Taylor Swift can't come to the phone because "she's dead"! Could it be that Taylor sees the new album as a radical departure for her, or is she referring to Kanye and Kim, and the call he made to her about his single with the controversial lyrics about her a few years back?
After a long wait, Taylor Swift made the announcement earlier this week that her new album Reputation would be coming out on November 10. The American pop sensation revealed the album's cover art on Instagram.
