Taylor Swift dropped the second song from her upcoming “1989” album at midnight Tuesday. Hours later, “Out of the Woods” reached No. 1 on iTunes, bumping down “Shake It Off,” the single she released a few weeks ago, to the No. 2 spot.
Even Taylor seemed shocked by the news.
Cowritten by Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist of Fun, the song mixes a bit of synth rock with what Taylor is known for: writing about relationships.

“Looking at it now/Last December, we were built to fall apart/Then fall back together/Your necklace hanging from my neck/The night we couldn’t quite forget/When we decided/To move the furniture so we could dance.”
