The official release of 1989 is still a week away, but Taylor Swift has given her fans (and critics) another taste of the album with the release of “Welcome to New York.”

Famously, or maybe not so famously, Swift spent the summer in New York wearing crop-tops and being inspired. She calls the city “electric” and a place of “endless potential.”

Swift wrote “Welcome To New York” with One Republic frontman, Ryan Tedder. If you’re a fan of Swedish pop-star, Robyn, the tune may sound a bit like her music. And Time.com just called the song, “the musical equivalent of a peppermint latte,” which I count as a big win!

Taylor Swift’s “Welcome To New York” Inspiration

Taylor Swift // “Welcome To New York” Lyrics

Walking through a crowd

The village is aglow

Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats

Under coats

Everybody here wanted something more

Searching for a sound we hadn’t heard before

And it said

Welcome to New York

It’s been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

It’s been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

It’s a new soundtrack I could dance to this beat, beat

Forevermore

The lights are so bright

But they never blind me, me

Welcome to New York

It’s been waiting for you

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

When we first dropped our bags

On apartment floors

Took our broken hearts

Put them in a drawer

Everybody here was someone else before

And you can want who you want

Boys and boys and girls and girls

Chorus

Like any great love

It keeps you guessing

Like any real love

It’s ever changing

Like any true love

It drives you crazy

But you know you wouldn’t change Anything, anything, anything…

Chorus
