Don’t Panic But Taylor Swift Is Dropping A Christmas Song Tonight

06 December 2019

Whatever you’re doing right now. Stop doing it. It can wait. Unless you’re performing heart surgery or flying a plane, in which case put your phone down. Regardless, I digress. You’re going to want to stop what you’re doing because, in a mere few hours, Taylor Swift, Queen of our hearts is releasing her first-ever Christmas song. That sound you hear? It’s Mariah Carey fearing the end of her 25-year reign as the annual festive chart-topper.

In a quick vid posted to Tay-Tay’s Insta stories, the singer-songwriter revealed she casually wrote the song last weekend, which wow, overachiever much. She went on to ask her cats if it was a good idea to release the tune called Christmas Tree Farm in time for the holidays. Though it’s well-known cats cannot speak, in a rare Christmas miracle, Taylor decided to release the song despite the lack of feline enthusiasm.

But it’s not just the song that will drop today. Swift will also be dropping the track’s music video which is made up of her family’s collection of home videos. What a treat!

Now in case you’re not up to date on all the facets of Taylor Swift’s life, as a youngster, Taylor grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania. Based on that alone we think this will be one of her more family-focused songs than a track about an ex-lover.

Naturally, the Swifties on Twitter are freaking TF out.

Needless to say, this is going to be one hotly anticipated track so don’t be surprised if your Spotify crashes. After all, can one website really take the force of hundreds of thousands of festive stans? Probably not, but we’ll be impressed if it can.

Taylor is planning on releasing the song at midnight tonight, US time. That means you’ve got until 4pm this afternoon Sydney time to stream and relisten to every song she’s ever released. Like we said, stop what you’re doing. Cancel your plans. You’ve got work to do.
