Taylor Swift Previews 'Welcome to New York' Song - Listen Here!

Taylor Swift has released the 30-second preview for her brand new song “Welcome to New York” and you can listen to it 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!

    Sounds a lot like Katy Perry. I’m beginning to think that other then Shake It Off Taylor should have stuck with country/pop.

  • sky

    the sound of this album is a total Katy Perry Knockoff. Your are right pepper she should have stuck to country pop.

  • Dee

    She fit more with country. Keith Urban and Taylor’s music is hard to call pure country has a bit of pop to it. Both great !!
