Taylor Swift's "State of Grace" is the No. 1 song on iTunes following its release at midnight on Tuesday. The song is the fifth track Swift has released from "Red," her newest album. "Red" is out in stores on Oct. 22.
"I wrote this song about when you first fall in love with someone. The possibilities. Kind of thinking about the different ways that it could go," Swift said while previewing the song on "Good Morning America" on Monday. "It's a really big sound. To me, this sounds like the feeling of falling in love in an epic way. I hope you like it."
"State of Grace" owes more to the indie pop of Temper Trap (particularly that band's hit "Sweet Disposition") than to the Top-40 sound of Swift's previous releases, like "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," "I Knew You Were Trouble" and the album's title track, "Red."
Listen to "State of Grace" above. "Red" is finally out in stores and digital download sites next week.
