Taylor Swift’s new single “Welcome To New York” is arriving on iTunes tonight at midnight! The track is off Taylor’s upcoming “1989” album, and is part of Taylor’s brand new pop sound.
Taylor explained about the song:
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. 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.’
We’re excited for the latest chapter in Taylor’s music career! Let us know what YOU think of “Welcome To New York.”
