Taylor Swift, Billboard’s 2014 Woman of the Year, exclusively sampled 30 seconds of a new track “Out Of The Woods” for ABC-TV’s GMA today (Oct. 13). Thus far, the only track revealed from her forthcoming 1989 pop album is the official radio single “Shake it Off.”
“Out of the Woods” will be available for download on iTunes once the clock strikes midnight (Tuesday, Oct. 14). The track is co-written and co-produced by Swift and Jack Antonoff (lead singer of fun.), with vocal production by Max Martin.
“‘Out Of The Woods’ is one of my favorite songs on 1989,” said Swift. “A goal of mine on this album was to make sure the songs sounded exactly the way the emotions felt. This song is about the fragility of some relationships…where you never feel like you are standing on solid ground. This song stresses that even if the relationship is breakable and fragile, it doesn’t mean it isn’t worthwhile and beautiful.”
1989 will be released by Big Machine Records on Oct. 21. Swift’s current single is promoted to pop radio by Republic Records. The international star just wrapped a trip to France and London where she appeared on the X Factor UK, Graham Norton Show and BBC Radio. Promotional partnerships for the 2014 release include Subway, Diet Coke, Target and Keds.
Swift has career record sales in excess of 30 million albums and almost 80 million song downloads worldwide. Her album RED, released almost two years ago, has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide, including more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S. in its first week.
