Pop star's album was released one year ago
Taylor Swift has revealed a stripped-back version of her song ‘Out Of The Woods’ as she celebrates the one-year anniversary of her hit album ‘1989’.
The album was released on October 27 last year and the pop star offered an alternative take on one of its best loved tracks with fans. Swift played ‘Out Of The Woods’ on piano at the Grammy Museum on September 30. You can hear it below.
“The number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety,” Swift told the audience before her performance. “It felt very fragile, it felt very tentative. And it always felt like, ‘OK, what’s the next roadblock?’ What’s the next thing that’s gonna deter this? How long do we have before this turns into an awful mess and we break up? Is it a month, is it three days?'”
She added: “I think a lot of relationships can be very solid. That’s what you hope for – solid and healthy, but that’s not always what you get. And it doesn’t mean that it’s not special, and extraordinary just to have a relationship that’s fragile and somehow meaningful in that fragility.”
Speaking to NME for an exclusive cover feature earlier in October, Swift confirmed she plans to take time off when her ‘1989’ world tour ends, saying she thinks fans “might need a break from me.”
Asked if she worries about having to improve on the huge success of her latest album, Swift suggested that might not be possible: “How could the next one be as big?” she asked.
“Maybe the next album will be a bridge to somewhere else. Or maybe I’ll just go ahead and change everything.”
As for plans once the ‘1989’ tour wraps up in December, Swift added: “I think I should take some time off. I think people might need a break from me. I’m going to… I don’t know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don’t know.”
