We’re massive Taylor Swift fangirls and are absolutely giddy now that she’s not only released a new single, but that her fifth album is due to land in late October. Be still our dancing-in-the-bedroom hearts. The single is Shake It Out and is supposedly an anti-haters anthem,
“Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off”
Dead right Taylor. The upcoming album is called 1989 and on yesterday’s Yahoo! Live Stream the singer announced this will be her first true pop album and is inspired by “bold” 1980s pop. This is the evolution of Taylor Swift into her own true self, people. And we’ve all got front row seats thanks to her amazing Instagram life where supermodel Karlie Kloss just drops by and Lorde joins in on cookery classes.
While the video for Shake It Out lacks the dramatic tension of the award-winning Love Story we’re still voting it today’s permanent tab. Mainly due to the perky tempo but also because of Swift’s twerking. Her choreography is the opposite of Beyoncé and this is why we love the Taylor.
