The Max Martin and Shellback-co-penned track serves as the seventh single from the record, which recently won the Album of the Year title at the 2016 Grammys.
Taylor Swift is releasing another single off her latest album, "1989". The former country superstar has just taken to Twitter to confirm rumors that "New Romantics" will be her next song to hit the radio.
"I'm very happy to say the next single from 1989 will be 'New Romantics'," the 26-year-old songstress tweeted on Friday night, February 19. The song will be the seventh single lifted from the 2014 record, following chart-toppers like "Shake It Off, "Blank Space", "Style", "Bad Blood", "Wildest Dreams" and "Out of the Woods".
Written by Swift along with hitmakers Max Martin and Shellback, "New Romantics" is a bonus track on the deluxe edition of "1989". Thematically, the song is similar to lead cut "Shake It Off" which is also about her dealing with haters.

"Cause baby I could build a castle/ Out of all the bricks they threw at me," she sings in the chorus. "Heartbreak is the national anthem/ We sing it proudly/ We're too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet/ Baby we're the new romantics/ The best people in life are free."
The new single announcement came on the heels of her big night at the 2016 Grammy Awards earlier this week. In addition to winning Best Music Video for her and Kendrick Lamar's "Bad Blood", she took home the Best Pop Vocal Album and the prestigious Album of the Year for "1989".
