Taylor Swift Releases Most Interesting Single Yet, “The Archer,” Written, of course, with Jack Antonoff


Taylor Swift has dropped a new single — on a Tuesday, just like the old days. It’s her most interesting one, yet, from her forthcoming album. “The Archer” is co-written by Jack Antonoff. It’s moody and disturbing, as opposed to peppy and poppy. The lyrics will be picked apart by her fans, but they’re just clever, which is fine. Should be programmed between The Cars’ “Drive” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”
