Taylor Swift’s latest song has a new target: homophobes.

“You Need to Calm Down” is the second single from Swift’s just-announced seventh album, “Lover,” to be released on Aug. 23.
Swift also released a colorful lyric video to match the new song on YouTube late Thursday – appropriately during Pride Month.
