People often ask what Taylor Swift’s music would sound like if she wasn’t writing about boys.

Well, so, far, it sounds pretty dance-worthy. Swift made her much-hyped Yahoo live-stream on Monday, revealing that she wrote a song about how when people hate, you just have to “Shake It Off.”

“’Cause the players gonna play, play, play / and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate,” she sings on the new single.

TSwift did just that during the live event, getting the crowd up and moving for the worldwide debut.

She also confirmed that she’s been working on a new album for two years, and her “music changed” during that time, coming up with her “favorite album” she’s ever made.

Because she was inspired by late '80s pop, Swift named her album "1989" and revealed the cover art, which is a Polaroid of the "Trouble" singer.

"1989" -- which is also the singer's birth year -- will drop on October 27, with a deluxe version that features three bonus tracks of her recording her song melodies into her phone.
