Taylor Swift's fans, or Swifties as they are better known, are in for a treat. After 'Look What You Made Me Do' and 'Ready For It?', she has released a third track from her album Reputation titled 'Goregous'.

The 27-year-old singer took to Instagram where she teased the new track with a three posts — one featuring the song's introduction, a baby voice saying "gorgeous" over an electro-pop sound bed.

Swift continues to be on the offensive when it comes to the lyrics of her songs. The song opens with the line, "You should take it as a compliment that I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk."

As the song progresses, you'll realise that Swift hasn't really grown up. It tells the story of how a girl meets a guy at a bar; she has a boyfriend and she does not know what he is up to, but she sure is attracted to this new one.

She hates on him, because he's attractive and he can't be her's. We could have related to 'Gorgeous' and sympathised with Swift if we were still 13 and listening to her play 'Lovestory'.

'Gorgeous' is the third song from Taylor Swift's upcoming album, Reputation. Her sixth studio LP releases on 10 November.
