Following her inescapable peppy chart-topper “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift is ready to start sharing more new music with the premiere of “Out of the Woods“! The track serves as a promotional single in support of the pre-order of her upcoming fifth studio album 1989, which is scheduled to be released on October 27 via Big Machine Records. Produced by Max Martin and written alongside fun.‘s Jack Antonoff, “Out of the Woods” sees Taylor ditching the cheery teen-pop shtick for something a little more mature and personal on this glorious number packed with a pounding beat, crashing drums, and dream-like ’80’s synths that will have you feeling all sorts of emotions all at once. “Last December, we were built to fall apart then fall back together / Your necklace hanging from my neck / The night we couldn’t quite forget / When we decided to move the furniture so we could dance / Baby, like we stood a chance / Two paper airplanes flying, flying.. and I remember thinking,” she sings before diving into the song’s epic anthemic chorus. While the fun. influence is clearly intact, the song is undeniably one of the best songs we’ve heard from Taylor yet. Consider me impressed!
