You need to calm down — Taylor Swift officially announced her new album.

“Lover,” her seventh full-length release, is coming out Aug. 23. Swift also announced that the second single from the album, “You Need to Calm Down,” will drop at midnight Friday.

Swift leaked the highly anticipated news — and her new rainbow-drenched cover art — on Twitter and Instagram posts and an Instagram Live chat on Thursday.

“Can’t wait for you to hear this,” Swift wrote.

Fans began speculating that Swift was releasing a new set of songs — and a new version of herself when her social media began to turn to pastel hues. Swift is known for leaving breadcrumb hints in anticipation of her music.

Swift said this album will have a “romantic” vibe to it.

Swifties can expect a music video for the song on June 17, which will debut on “Good Morning America.”

According to Swift’s live chat, “Lover” will feature 18 new tracks. Four deluxe versions of the work will be available at Target (which Swift has partnered with in the past) stores.

The first single from the album, “ME,” came out on April 26. The happy pop hit featured Brendon Urie from “Panic! At the Disco.”

The giddy aesthetic is a sharp departure from her last album, “reputation,” which released in 2017. Swift staged herself in dark, bold clothes and featured much harder images on her social at that time.

She’s since clearly changed her tune, which many speculate is because of her under-wraps romance with British actor Joe Alwyn (“The Favourite”). The two began seeing each other in 2016.

Want to cop her cheery vibes? You can — Swift also announced that she’s releasing a fashion collab with designer Stella McCartney that’s inspired by “Lover.”
