The Shocking Story Behind Taylor Swift's Song 'New Year's Day'

One of the fan favorites on Taylor Swift’s album Reputation is her piano ballad "New Year's Day," which her producer Jack Antonoff just revealed was basically written almost by accident.

"We didn’t plan to write it," Jack explained to Jimmy Fallon. "I think if you plan to write a ballad you always get less than you hoped for. But then magic happened."

Adding: "We literally wrote that song in a second."


And last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Taylor world premiered the visual for "Delicate," another track off Reputation. Check it out below:
