Rejoice Swifties! We’ve got a TGIF treat courtesy of Taylor Swift’s new song, titled “New Year’s Day”.
Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of “Reputation“, the first live performance of the piano ballad debuted during ABC’s latest episode of “Scandal”. The performance was pre-taped during the Grammy winner’s Secret Sessions in her Rhode Island home.
The 28-year-old singer is seen delivering her heartfelt number to some 100 Swifties in a candlelit setting – many of whom were singing along with her. “New Year’s Day” is a thoughtful track about learning from the good and bad from life’s experiences. There’s also hope that the man she’s infatuated with (we’re looking at you Joe Alwyn), will stick by her through thick and thin.
“There’s glitter on the floor after the party / Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby / Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor / You and me from the night before but / Don’t read the last page / But I stay when you’re lost and I’m scared and you’re turning away,” Swift sang. “I want your midnights / But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day.”
“Reputation” debuts on 10th November.
