"I started the album with 'Welcome to New York' because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years," Swift said in a release. "It’s like an electric city, and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism. I saw New York as a place of endless potential and possibilities, and you can hear that reflected in this music and in this song."

"Welcome to New York" was written by Taylor Swift and Ryan Tedder and produced by Tedder, Swift and Noel Zancanella. Hear a preview below.
