Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York” leaks- Hey It’s Midnight Somewhere

Taylor is so done with Nashville and she is loving NYC.  In the third track for her upcoming 1989 album, Swift’s “Welcome to New York” is an ode to her new adopted city.

The song was produced and co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. “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 for the last couple of years,” Swift said in an introductory video. “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. I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can kind of hear that reflected in this music and this first song especially.” The track is set to be officially released tonight at midnight, but it’s leaked a little early. Listen below.

Listen to the track here. 1989 comes out Oct. 27.

Kimbra Debuts ‘Miracle’ Music Video – Watch Now!

This track serves as the second official single off the 24-year-old singer’s brand-new album The Golden Echo.

“This song is really a song about joy and celebration and the sense of having your faith restored in life and love again,” Kimbra told Consequence of Sound. “This song lyrically, is about what it’s like to be in a situation that makes me feel one way, and then someone comes along and shifts your perspective on it and you see it in a new way. It’s very much like an intervention of some sort — like a miracle. It plays with reality and shines a new light on something.”
