Taylor Swift isn't "out of the woods" yet when it comes to criticism over the release of her new song.
While fans in the U.S. can purchase "Out of the Woods," a track from her forthcoming disc, 1989, her U.K. fans cannot. When they complained about this injustice, Taylor took to Tumblr to explain. "To all my wonderful UK fans, I realize that you are not yet able to get ‘Out of the Woods’ due to a new strategy my record label is working on in the UK," she wrote.
"I’ve never been one to hold my music back from any of you so I will be watching closely to see if this is ultimately a better experience for you, the fans," she continued, and then further justified the decision by name-dropping someone else who's quite popular among British music fans these days, and who did the same thing.
"My good friend Ed Sheeran utilized the same strategy with ‘One’ in the UK and he seemed very happy with the feedback from his fans," she pointed out. "But, ultimately, it’s down to you. Let me know."
Meanwhile, Taylor is planning to preview lyric snippets from other tracks on 1989 each day on Instagram until the album arrives on October 27. She's already posted "Track 1," the lyrics for which read, "It's a new soundtrack I could dance to this beat...forevermore."
