Out of the woods Taylor Swift
Song Title: Out of the woods
Artist: Taylor Swift
Date of release: January 12, 2016
Description: ” Out of the woods ” by Taylor Swift the American singer-songwriter. The song is written by Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff the lead guitarist of the indie rock group called Fun.
The song is the fourth track on her fith Album 1989 and the second song to be released, a 15 second clip of the song was first shown on Good Morning America in 2014.
Originally intended as a promo release only without a video ” Out of the woods ” the single was released and a video made to accompany it, it is the sixth single release from the Album 1989.
Recorded as a synthpop track with music from the 1980’s heavily influencing the composition, this was the first song that Taylor had written to a track that already existed.
Jack Antonoff had sent Taylor an early version without any vocal accompaniment, the lyrics were then written and add by Taylor in 30 minutes.
As with all Taylor Swift songs this was to be a commercial success with an entry into the Billboard Hot 100 Chart at number 18 where it stayed.
” Out of the woods ” became Taylor’s 61st song to reach the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, only a feat surpassed by Aretha Franklin.
With digital sales of 195,000 the song entered the US Hot Digital Songs chart and knocked her song ” Shake it off ” from the top. This achievement made Taylor the first artist to occupy both number one and two since 2012 and she also claimed the rank of four with the artist with the most number one digital songs which tied with Rihanna for the most number one debut songs on the charts.
Success followed elsewhere with a new entry at number six in New Zealand, on the Australian Singles Chart the song entered at number 21.
It seems the record buyers in the United Kingdom didn’t quite fall in love with ” Out of the woods ” as the song failed to show anywhere higher than number 136 on the Official Charts.
