Taylor Swift drops 'vulnerable' song The Archer from new album
Taylor Swift has just dropped another song from her upcoming album Lover and now all we can hear are Swifties screaming everywhere.
The 29-year-old singer released The Archer on Tuesday and told fans in an Instagram Live that it was a very ’emotional, vulnerable and personal’ track.
Tissues at the ready, guys.
‘There’s a lot that’s covered emotionally and I really wanted to give you track five before the album came out,’ T-Swift said on Instagram.
‘I didn’t realize I was doing this, but as I was making albums, I guess I was just kind of putting a very vulnerable, personal, honest, emotional song as track five.’
She went on: ‘So because you noticed this, I kind of started to put the songs that were really honest, emotional, vulnerable and personal as track five, so that has definitely happened in the case of track five on this album.’
The lyrics of the catchy pop track go: ‘I’ve been the archer / I’ve been the prey / Screaming, “Who could ever leave me darling?” / But who could stay?’
We’re getting chills.
Tay-Tay’s been a big old tease about her album Lover, dropping several songs from it including You Need To Calm Down and ME!, which features Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie.
And after what feels like decades and decades of drama with celebrity manager Scooter Braun, things are looking up for Swifty.
The singer has scored a whopping 10 nominations for the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards, which is the same as Ariana Grande.
ME! was nominated for Best Collaboration, while the song’s video received nods for Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects.
And the singer’s LGBT-themed anthem, You Need to Calm Down, received seven nominations for Best Pop, Video for Good, Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Direction, Best Editing and Best Art Direction.
