Taylor Swift is back with a new single. The song titled "Look What You Made Me Do" uses an interpolation from Right Said Fred's 1991 hit "I'm Too Sexy".

The  27-year-old singer dropped her latest number late hours on Thursday to streaming platforms and iTunes. 

The song features elements of pop, dance, and house, and includes sharp lyrics like: "Honey, I rose up from the dead I do it all the time/I got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined I check it once/Then I check it twice."

Taylor Swift also leaves a message at the end of the song saying: "I'm sorry, but the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, 'cause she's dead."

The song is the first single from her sixth album, "Reputation," to be released Nov. 10. A clip of the song's video was scheduled to premiere today on "Good Morning America."

Music aficionados feel that the song could be a hit at Kanye West with whom the young singer had run into a number of issues in the past. Last year their feud took to a new low when Kanye West's wife, Kim Kardashian released audio recordings that she said proved Swift gave West the go ahead for a Swift reference in the song "Famous."

Swift's voice message on her new song could be a reference to the audio Kardashian leaked. Others felt the opening lines of "Look What You Made Me Do" — "I don't like your little games/Don't like your tilted stage" — was a reference to West's recent tour, which featured a floating stage.

The album "Reputation" is the follow-up to 2014's "1989," Swift's first official pop album after years of dominating in country music.

"1989" had launched seven hit singles, from "Shake It Off" to "Bad Blood," and won three Grammys, including album of the year. The album helped her produce a star-studded world tour, featuring guest appearances from musicians such as Justin Timberlake and John Legend to A-List celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Chris Rock.
