How To Listen To Taylor Swift's "Ready For It," So You Can Find Out What The Fuss Is All About
In case you had any doubts, Taylor Swift is officially back. Without much of a warning, she premiered a snippet of a new song on Saturday night during ABC's Saturday college football game between Alabama & Florida State. And if you didn't have your TV on at that exact moment that the tease of new music debuted, you might be eager to know how to listen to Taylor Swift's "Ready For It" — immediately. And you're also probably wondering when the full version of Swift's "Ready For It" will be out. (Bustle reached out to Swift's rep, but did not receive an immediate response.) Fans are predicting the single will drop Sunday morning, but that's currently unconfirmed. Update: The full single is now out (below).
Earlier: Luckily, the preview of Swift's song is available on ESPN's Twitter, where you can hear the first minute in the meantime. It strikes a very different tone than "Look What You Made Me Do" — in fact the whole thing feels very much like the Old Taylor that the first single she released claimed was dead.
However, the song is pretty infectious, and while LWYMMD has divided many listeners, I'm betting most people will agree that at the very least, this new Swift song is a total bop.
Plus, with all the song's sly digs at Swift's exes (when she says her new dude is younger, you know she's taking a swipe at Calvin Harris and Tom Hiddleston, who are both in their 30s), the song offers up another fun round of clues.
The song also firmly takes a stance as Swift being in control of her relationship, with all language highlighting her active role in starting the relationship, which is a delightful change from the "He Did Me Wrong" narrative she's ridden for so long.
Bring it on, New Taylor.
