The lead-up to Taylor Swift’s 1989 keeps moving along, now with a preview of another new song lodged in a Target commercial for the deluxe edition of the album.
The commercial explains just why exactly Swift was wandering around New York with a bunch of red balloons. It also gives fans a taste of “Style,” which is probably about just who you think it’s about. (Style… Harry Styles… get it?) In her Rolling Stone profile, Josh Eells called the song a “high-water mark for Swiftian faux secrecy,” and Swift herself joked, “We should have just called it ‘I’m Not Even Sorry.'”
“You got that long hair, slicked back, white t-shirt/And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt,” Swift sings. (Yes, that word is “faith,” according to Swift herself.) It’s comforting that Swift is going back to the old “t-shirt/skirt” rhyme, only now she’s the one wearing the short skirts. And while this song is likely about Harry Styles, I’d also like to believe it’s about leaving the gym.
In more Swift news, on the day the album is released, Oct. 27, Swift will appear on The Voice, and a new promo reveals that she is in fine form on the show, matching the coaches when it comes to sass.
“How come when you refer to crazy girls you never throw yourself in that category?” Blake Shelton asks.
“I just feel like it’s assumed and understood,” she deadpans.
