Is Taylor Swift Coming Back to Country with New Year’s Day?

and what do you think about that?

Taylor Swift has just released her new album, Reputation. And while the project is decidedly pop influenced, there is a track on the album that is getting some country music attention.

Her new single “New Year’s Day” was revealed during ABC’s Scandal. It featured the singer in her Rhode Island home sitting at a grand piano surrounded by a huge number of friends, who sang along with the pop star.

Swift‘s record label Big Machine records, sent the song to country radio.

There is no question that the artist is an amazing songwriter with an uncanny ability to say real things in ways that no one has ever said them before, while still making total sense.

Her work is believable and her impact on music trends is unparalleled.

Swift recently won a “Song of the Year,” at CMA’s for the first time since 2013 for writing Little Big Town’s hit single “Better Man.”

Tell us what you think. Is the new song country enough for country radio?

“New Year’s Day”

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
Don’t read the last page
But I stay when you’re lost, and I’m scared
And you’re turning away
I want your midnights
But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day

[Verse 2]
You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi
I can tell that it’s gonna be a long road
I’ll be there if you’re the toast of the town, babe
Or if you strike out and you’re crawling home

[Chorus]
Don’t read the last page
But I stay when it’s hard, or it’s wrong
Or we’re making mistakes
I want your midnights
But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day

[Post-Chorus]
Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
And I will hold on to you

[Bridge]
Please don’t ever become a stranger
Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere
Please don’t ever become a stranger
Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere

[Verse 3]
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 forevermore
