” 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 Fun, the indie rock group.
The song is the fourth track on her fifth album, 1989, and the second song to be released. A fifteen-second clip of the song was first shown on Good Morning America in 2014.
Originally intended as a promo and without a video, ” Out of the Woods “, was released and a video made to accompany it.
Recorded as a synthpop track, it featured a style of music from the 1980s, which influenced the composition. It 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 just thirty minutes.
As with all Taylor Swift songs, the single became a commercial success. It entered the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States at number eighteen where it peaked.
” Out of the Woods ” became Taylor’s sixty-first song to reach the Billboard Hot 100, only a feat surpassed by the legendary 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.
The achievement made Taylor the first artist to occupy both Number One and two since 2012; 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 chart.
Taylor had success outside of the United States with a new entry at number six in New Zealand and twenty-one on the Australian Singles Chart.
In the United Kingdom, the single didn’t fare so well; the song failed to show anywhere higher than number 136 on the UK Singles Chart.
