Taylor Swift has surprised her fans by releasing another new song preview – you can listen to the 30-second clip from “Welcome to New York” right here!
The 24-year-old singer debuted the clip on Good Morning America on Monday (October 20) and also released a video of herself talking about the track.
“The first song on 1989 is a song called ‘Welcome to New York’ and I wanted to start the album with this song because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years,” Taylor said in the clip. “You know, I dreamt about moving to New York. I obsessed over moving to New York and then I did it. The inspiration that I found in that city is kind of hard to describe and hard to compare to any other force of inspiration I’ve ever experienced in my life. It’s like an electric city and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities. You can kind of hear that reflected in this music and in this first song especially. This is a song I did with Ryan Tedder called ‘Welcome to New York.’”
Get the new song tonight at 11:59pm on iTunes!
