I'm saving this instance of Music Discovery Sunday for today, because the album, Taylor Swift's 1989, was not dropped until today. It was leaked prior to its actual release because humans suck, but out of respect for the artist I refuse to introduce my readers even a day early without explicit permission (which I do not have, so... Monday).
I got a fancy little sneak peak at this particular song, Clean, and, much to my chagrin, I like it... a lot.
SIDE NOTE: All of you Swifties can get your panties out of a wad, ok?
I have an irrational (albeit quickly melting) dislike of Taylor Swift,
and I'm going to hold onto it until I have
absolutely no ground to stand on as is my way.
I am of the opinion that Imogen Heap can do no wrong, so adding her to this track on the new album was a wise choice on Swift's part, at least to garner my attention (because I'm sure that's Taylor's main concern: whether or not Stefers the Great listens to her music) as well as others from my demographic.
All of that being said, I'm really looking forward to the rest of this album. Taylor Swift is slowly but surely shifting my opinion from irrational dislike to earnest fan. I don't know how she's doing it (other than releasing awesome songs lately), but I respect it. Job well done so far, Ms. Swift. I'm excited that your albums aren't all about boys and post relationship smears.
