Taylor Swift gave another taste of her album Reputation with the new song, “Call It What You Want
“Call It What You Want” just arrived and is the fourth song lifted from Reputation, after “Look What You Made Me Do,” “…Ready for It?” and “Gorgeous.”
For her fourth and (possibly) final drop before the full album reveals next week, Swift has bestowed on us “Call It What You Want.”
Like the previous three songs — the bombastic “Look What You Made Me Do,” rally-cry anthem “…Ready For It?” and tongue-in-cheek love song “Gorgeous” — Swift teased the new music with an announcement Thursday in the form of three Instagram posts, telling fans to prepare themselves for the midnight music madness and including a few cryptic lyrics.
Judging by the early response on social media, Taylor’s fans are happily feasting on the new recording. And there’s a lot to feast on right now.
Eager fans noted the “Call It” lyrics seemed to connect with Swift’s 2008 song “Love Story” and its gooey depiction of a romance for the ages.
Call It What You Want” is a soft love song that talks about being completely lost in a romance. Swift teased the song’s release on her social media Thursday with a snippet of the lyrics, sending all of her fans into yet another tailspin. The 27-year-old pop star has dropped four singles and two music videos since announcing her sixth studio album, which will be released Nov. 10.
“I’m doing better than I ever was, ’cause my baby’s fit like a daydream walking with his head down,” Swift sings. “I’m the one he’s walking to, so call it what you want, yeah call it what you want to.”
This latest single from Swift has softer tones than her previous singles, which all took on an electronic pop feel. “Call It What You Want” is a melodic ballad that will have you feeling like you’re falling head over heels all over again.
“And I know I make the same mistakes every time, bridges burned, I never learn. At least I did one thing right,” the lyrics continue. “I did one thing right.”
Yes, we’ll take a million more of these beautiful lyrics, please.
