Taylor Swift has unveiled a new song called Gorgeous, and its lyrics have caused fans to speculate who she is singing about.

Swift dropped the track yesterday, the third from her forthcoming new album, Reputation.

The song marks a return to the US singer's softer pop style and is in contrast to the album's first song, Look What You Made Me Do, a feisty revenge track in which she joked she was "dead".

In Gorgeous, 27-year-old Swift sings: "You're so gorgeous, I can't say anything to your face, 'Cause look at your face.

"And I'm so furious, at you for making me feel this way, but what can I say?"

She also sings "I've got a boyfriend, he's older than us, he's in the club doing I don't know what" and that her mystery man has "ocean blue eyes".

Following its release online, the star's fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the song while also trying to decode its meaning.


Swift has had several high-profile romances over the years, including with actor Tom Hiddleston (36) and DJ Calvin Harris (33).

She is believed to be in a relationship with 26-year-old English actor Joe Alwyn.

Fans have speculated that the song could be about either of her exes or Alwyn.

One wrote on Twitter: "Tom has blue eyes. Calvin has blue eyes. Joe has blue eyes. Taylor should write a song called 'My Blue-Eyed Boys'."

Another said: "I think this song is about Joe, Calvin and Tom #Gorgeous."

One said they thought the first verse is about Harris, and the second about Hiddleston.
