Taylor Swift releases newest single: 'Welcome to New York'


Taylor Swift unveiled her latest single Tuesday off of her "1989" album, which is due out later this month. It comes on the heels of "Out of the Woods," and of course the much talked about "Shake It Off."

The single, called "Welcome to New York," was produced and co-written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder.

Swift is far from her country roots with this one. It's a high-pitched, candy-coated, pulsing New York anthem that will no doubt soon be on every radio station in the Tri-state area. But her ode to the city that never sleeps isn't the first one. She's following in the footsteps of the great Billy Joel, Jay-Z and of course, Frank Sinatra -- all of whom produced chart-topping hits about the city.
