The 30-second snippet of the single is clearly infectious, though the new tune appears to be a lot heavier than the super-upbeat "Shake It Off." Nevertheless, it further confirms Taylor's decision to leave her country roots behind to go full-on pop.
"'Out of the Woods’ is one of my favorite songs on this album because one of the goals I set out to accomplish when I wanted to make this album I wanted to make sure the songs sounded exactly the way the emotions felt when I felt them," she said in a sit-down interview with GMA. "This song is about the fragility, and the kind of breakable nature of some relationships."
"This was a relationship where it was kind of living day to day, wondering where it was going, and if it was gonna go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day," Taylor, 24, says. "It was a relationship where you kind of felt you were never standing on solid ground. And that kind of a feeling brings on excitement, but also extreme anxiety, and kind of a frantic feeling of wondering."
Though don't feel too bad for Harry -- Taylor also admits that in hindsight, the relationship in the song was "worthwhile, exciting, and beautiful, and all the things that we look for."
