Taylor Swift has just released her the long-awaited first single from her seventh studio album.

Taylor Swift has just released her new single 'Me' featuring Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco [screams!]

It is the first single from her seventh studio album, known as #TS7 by her fans. It is the first time Taylor has collaborated with another artist on the lead single from one her own albums. Lucky Brendon! Her last album, Reputation, dropped in November 2017.

On April 13th, Taylor launched a countdown that announced that she would...announce something on April 26th, with most fans believing it to be the first single. It follows a long series of hints to what could possible be in store for the next Swift era.

Watch the video for 'Me' below.

Rumours began swirling late last night (April 24) that Brendon Urie would make an appearance on the track after a Taylor Swift fan account (Swift_alert) tweeted that: "Some sources at Youtube have said that Taylor Swift has internally uploaded a video called "#ME!" featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco!?!? Taylor recently commissioned a #TSmural that centerpieces the word "ME!".

Coincidentally, a clip of Brendon Urie responding to a comment on a Twitch livestream about Taylor Swift's countdown circulated on Twitter yesterday as well, to which he responded: "Taylor Swift's countdown ends tomorrow', really? Well that's exciting. Oh my goodness, you know it's going to be something wild. When has she never not brought the heat, you know what I'm saying? C'mon, she's Swifty. She brings the heat, dude."

Not only that, but Swift also included a Panic! At The Disco song in her playlist of songs that have impacted her life in a recent ELLE UK cover story. What number on the list was the song? 26, which song interpreted at yet another hint that Brendon would feature on the song dropping today, April 26th. Her mind...

What do you think of the song? Let us know @popbuzz.
