The fresh song is previewed by ESPN during the college football game between Alabama and Florida State.
An excerpt of Taylor Swift’s brand new song called “Ready for It” has arrived online, thanks to ESPN. It’s used as soundtrack for the college football game between Alabama and Florida State. A minute of the song was played during the pre-game intro.
“I see how this is gonna go, touch me and you’ll never be alone /Island breeze and lights down low, no one has to know,” Taylor sings. “In the middle of the night, in my dreams /You should see the things we do, baby /In the middle of the night, in my dreams /I know I’m gonna be with you, so I take my time.”
Are you #readyforit?

The track is among the new materials in the singer’s next studio installment “Reputation”. The album is coming out September 10. The lead single “Look What You Made Me Do” was released on August 25 and the music video premiered a few days later at MTV Video Music Awards.
Taylor has broken multiple records with “LWYMMD”. The single has reached No. 1 in the United Kingdom, marking her first-ever chart topper across the pond. It also set Spotify’s global record with eight million streams on its first day.
She also celebrated the most-viewed lyric video on YouTube with more than 19 million views in its first 24 hours, beating Coldplay and The Chainsmokers’ “Something Just Like This” which held the previous record with 9 million views. On top of that, the music video shattered YouTube record for the most-viewed music video with 30 million views.
Taylor Swift is rumored to diss her enemies and exes in “Look What You Made Me Do”. The “tilted stage” in the lyrics was supposedly a subtle jab at Kanye West who had tilted stage on his recent Saint Pablo tour. The line, “You ask me for a place to sleep / locked me out and threw a feast”, supposedly referred to Calvin Harris and Katy Perry. The DJ made up with Katy, who has a single called “Bon Apetit”, following his split from Taylor.
