Target’s new ad has Style! NYC Photoshoot. Bonus track lyric.

October 21, 2014

There are no nights off here, Taylor Nation.

We’re going to break the rules a bit and go with a video first. Here’s the new Target ad which has a new song you’ve never heard before. This is “Style”! Updated: Longer version.

Now here’s a quick picture gallery of the Enchantress’ unique New York via her Instagram:

1989 in T minus 6: Taylor Swift to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show! Track 11…

October 21, 2014

Best time ever to be us, Taylor Nation.

You probably are still dancing to Welcome to New York. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s getting close to crunch time, we’re about to have an event of our own. It’s funny how life gets busy sometimes. It’s not like it’s easy to catch up with the Sparkly Dressed when she’s Lightning On Her Feet, but I do have to say it’s always fun.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar has been announced to appear on Ellen DeGeneres on Monday, October 27.  According to the official site, she’s not just making an appearance, she’s also performing music. The way it works, Ellen records the show a few days early. Taylor’s appearance on the show are always entertaining. You’ll probably going to hate me for this but as much as I love Ellen, she does have a bit of a knack for making people uncomfortable. Yeah, she’s going to try to scare Taylor… I know what to expect and that’s fine. The part I really don’t want to see is Ellen playing another game of “who’s Taylor dating” when she’s not dating anybody.

On another note, I completely missed Taylor posting Track 11 lyrics on Instagram back in Sunday when she was flying back to the US. It’s funny how it’s the first time I hear those lyrics, they’re completely new and never been used yet they have a familiarity to them. That’s the future Selina Kyle (nickname/moniker that I hope sticks but I know I’ll have to be explaining) for you, always the songwriter.

Welcome To New York, it’s been waiting for you.

It’s been waiting for you, Taylor Nation!

Welcome to New York is available! Wait did I download the wrong thing? What music is this? Did the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar just made a play for the dance floor? This song could very much be taking over clubs all over the world. Like any great song, it makes you wanna dance.

Definitely a strong 80’s vibe mixed with synthesizers, the Queen of Sparks is not playing around. This is a calculated takeover of pop music. She’s not trying to shyly slip in the door, she’s actually defining the genre herself. Yes, it’s a throwback to the past and might just cause a trend. There’s also a clear message of acceptance, “and you can want who you want, boys and boys and girls and girls.”

One line review: It’s amazing. Not in the same way of “Out Of The Woods” or “Shake It Off” but totally compatible with them both. I’ve starting to hear the “sonic cohesiveness” that will be Taylor’s trademark in the next two years.

Here’s an official preview of the song:

Oh, lyrics via Taylor of course :)

Welcome To New York
Written by Taylor Swift and Ryan Tedder Produced by Ryan Tedder, Taylor Swift, and Noel Zancanella

Walking through a crowd
The village is aglow
Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats
Under coats
Everybody here wanted something more
Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before
And it said

Welcome to New York
It’s been waiting for you
Welcome to New York
Welcome to New York
Welcome to New York
It’s been waiting for you
Welcome to New York
Welcome to New York

It’s a new soundtrack I could dance to this beat, beat
Forevermore
The lights are so bright
But they never blind me, me
Welcome to New York
It’s been waiting for you
Welcome to New York
Welcome to New York

When we first dropped our bags
On apartment floors
Took our broken hearts
Put them in a drawer
Everybody here was someone else before
And you can want who you want
Boys and boys and girls and girls

Chorus

Like any great love
It keeps you guessing
Like any real love
It’s ever changing
Like any true love
It drives you crazy
But you know you wouldn’t change Anything, anything, anything

Chorus

- Taylor Swift via Tumblr

And here’s the video of T explaining the song! Yes, I did post this already but I thought it deserved an encore.
