Red lips and rosy cheeks! Taylor Swift revealed the fifth single from her smash studio album 1989 on Wednesday, Aug. 5, sharing a rather surprising track with her 61.6 million-plus followers on Twitter.

The languorous, Lana Del Rey-esque "Wildest Dreams" is considered one of the most sexually mature tracks from Swift's fifth studio album, which was released last October. "His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room / And his voice is a familiar sound, nothing lasts forever," she croons. "He's so tall, and handsome as hell / He's so bad but he does it so well."

Swift, who wrote the track with Max Martin and Shellback, told Us Weekly last fall what inspired the dreamy song.

"'Wildest Dreams' is the best example of how my expectations have changed when it comes to love," a then-single Swift told Us. "Now, when I meet someone and there's chemistry, my first thoughts are 'When this ends, I hope you'll remember me well.'" (The singer, 25, has been happily dating hunky Scottish DJ Calvin Harris since April.)

Her latest single will follow "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "style," and "Bad Blood." Three out of the four tracks made it to the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 list.

Since 1989's release, the album has sold more than 5 million records in the U.S, making it the highest-selling album thus far of 2015. Swift broke records within the first week of 1989's debut last October, selling the most copies of any album since Eminem released The Eminem Show in 2002.
