Taylor Swift’s New Song, ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ Is Here
After a week-long roll-out consisting of snakes, snakes and more snakes, Taylor Swift is here with the first single from Reputation. Take a listen to “Look What You Made Me Do” below, and check out an All Things Considered interview from 2014 featuring a few questions from Melissa Block’s daughter, who was then in the 7th grade
Towards the end of the song, Swift uses an effect that approximates singing through a phone. “The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now,” she says. “Why?/ ‘Cause she’s dead.”
While not mentioning Kanye West by name, the song’s lyrics (West notably used a tilted stage on his recent Saint Pablo tour) alongside the phone voice appear to reference her long, public feud with the rapper.
