Here goes Taylor Swift. Teasing more music to fans.

She posted a cryptic photo on Instagram yesterday with the letter "5" and the word "Woods" underneath it. We guessed Taylor was teasing "Out of the Woods," a song off her forthcoming 1989 album, which she discussed in her interview with Rolling Stone.

Rolling Stone alluded that "Out of the Woods" was written about her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. The song is "a frantic tale of a relationship where … 'every day was a struggle. Forget making plans for life - we were just trying to make it to next week,'" she said.

She also revealed that the song is about a bad snowmobile accident she experienced with said ex-boyfriend. 

One lyric in the song goes - "Remember when you hit the brakes too soon/ Twenty stitches in a hospital room.”

The accident never made headlines because Taylor asked the witnesses not to say anything to press. “You know what I’ve found works even better than an NDA [non-disclosure agreement]? Looking someone in the eye and saying, ‘Please don’t tell anyone about this.’ ”

Sure, well okay.


"Out of the Woods" was co-written by fun./Bleachers' Jack Antonoff and he seems just as excited about the song as Taylor.


We honestly feel bad for Harry Styles and any other ex-boyfriend that Taylor Swift has written a song about. We get it. You're heartbroken, sad times make for great music. But do you really have to reveal so much? It's honestly a bit cringy. If this new track is going to be anything like "Dear John," our face and palms are going to permanently meet. *Face Palms 4Ever*
