out of the woods

It's been a year-long break-up song battle between Taylor Swift and Harry Styles, but we may finally have a winner.

Fans of the former couple, who dated back in 2012, will know that they have been not-so subtly taking digs at one another this year through various song lyrics – and Taylor's just taken things to the next level.

The video for her newest 1989 single, Out Of The Woods – a song inspired by her ill-fated romance with Harry – was released last night, and eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot one thing.

Taylor's blue dress, which she wears for the duration of the video, is almost identical to the one she wore on the day she split from Harry back in 2013. Subtle, but totally effective.

The pair ended their romance dramatically with a blow-out argument on the British Virgin Islands this week three years ago, with Taylor getting a boat back to the mainland by herself while Harry stayed behind to party with friends. 

Of course, the paps had a field day with the 'Lonely Taylor On A Boat' photos, all featuring Taylor in that blue dress.

Speaking about the story behind the song's lyrics earlier this year, Taylor admitted that "anxiety" is the main feeling she remembers from the relationship.

"It felt very fragile. It felt very tentative. It felt like, OK, what's the next road block?" she explained.

Hopefully the video marks the end of all the tension, now that Taylor's found happiness with Calvin Harris, and Harry seems to be moving on with none other than Kendall Jenner.



Oh Taylor, just when you think you can’t surprise us anymore, you tell us that you stalk your fans.

The singer, who is eagerly awaiting the release of her new album, 1989, was speaking to BBC America about her secret listening sessions, saying: “I would go online and would look at their Instagram pages, or their Twitter or their Tumblr or whatever and I just kind of watched them for months and months.”

We love how we can just imagine Taylor sitting in her room with Meredith and Olivia, watching Law & Order and stalking her fans – amazing. 

The singer was also forced to explain why her most recent single from the album, Out of the Woods, wasn't made available on iTunes UK, taking to her Tumblr account and writing: 

"To all my wonderful UK fans, I realise that you are not able to get ‘Out of the Woods’ due to a new strategy my record is working on it the UK. I’ve never been one to hold my music back from any of you so I will be watching closely to see of this is ultimately a better experience for you, the fans.”

Taylor went on to say that her bestie Ed Sheeran had done something similar: “My good friend Ed Sheeran utilised the same strategy with’One’ in the UK and he seemed very happy with the feedback from his fans. But ultimately, it’s down to you. Let me know.”



In her career-high interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Taylor Swift admitted that one or two of the tracks from her new album, 1989, would be about her failed relationship with Harry Styles.

Rumour had it that Out of the Woods would be the first song to clue fans in on what happened to break that dream couple up, and we’re giving you your very first listen here!

Taylor says that Out Of The Woods explains exactly what it's like to be in a fragile relationship.

"This song is about the fragility and kind of breakable nature of some relationships. This was a relationship where I was kind of living day to day, wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day. It was a relationship where you kind of never feel like you're standing on solid ground."

Eek, sounds like dating Harry can leave a girl in a constant state of panic.

Some good has come from this split though, with Taylor confirming the two have managed to be friends (read: not kill each other at unavoidable public events) and she says that Out of the Woods is a personal favourite out of her long list of self-written hits.

"Out of the Woods is one of my favorite songs on this album. I wanted to make sure that these songs sounded exactly the way that the emotions felt when I felt them."
