Glory be to Taylor Swift, y'all.

Our Swifty queen dropped a (very obvious) clue that she will be releasing a song next week, in five days to be exact. But not just any song. It's one of the songs that's supposedly about her relationship with Harry Styles and is titled "Out of the Woods."


5 days. #1989

According to the Rolling Stone piece on Swift and her new album 1989, "Out of the Woods" is the "frantic tale of a relationship" that Taylor described as an everyday struggle.

"Forgetting making plans for life. We were just trying to make it to next week," she said.

"Out of the Woods" is also the song that references a secret trip to the emergency room after a snowmobile accident with one of her exes (assumed to be Harry), with lyrics like: "Remember when you hit the brakes too soon/ Twenty stitches in a hospital room."

And the song's co-writer, Jack Antonoff (aka Lena Dunham's boyfriend), tweeted this about the tune back in September:

Needless to say, fans are going apes--t over the news that not only are we getting a new Taylor Swift song in five days, but it's one of the tracks that fans have been dying to hear since the Rolling Stone interview:

And it sounds like the lucky fans who have been to one of Taylor's listening parties can't help themselves from tweeting about how "OotW" (what do we all think of that abbreviation? Keep it?) will be life-changing, etc.:

Or maybe Taylor's new track is all about the fact that the stupid girl in the season premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show did not run away from the creepy, f--ked up looking clown when it came out of the woods?!

Still can't believe that. Idiot.

Anyway, let's all gird our loins because "Out of the Woods" is coming at us so soon and we are just not prepared.
