Early Wednesday morning, Taylor Swift announced the next single from her smash hit 1989 (which means she also announced which song you’ll be humming in your sleep for weeks to come). The answer? Swift’s swooner, “Wildest Dreams.”

This track may be considered one of Swift’s most grown up—there’s a hint of a bedroom scene in the lyric, “No one has to know what we do/ His hands are in my hair, his clothes are in my room.” (Here’s to hoping boyfriend Calvin Harris makes a cameo in the video.)

Upon Swift’s announcement, “Wildest Dreams” became a trending topic on Twitter, Billboard reports. The single follows “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” and “Bad Blood,” all of which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, except “Style,” which made it to No. 6.

According to Billboard, since its 2014 release, 1989 has sold 5.1 million copies in the U.S. alone.
