Any day with new Taylor Swift music is a good day, as far as I am concerned. And today, “Renegade” was released and my heart smiled. I love a good Taylor song.
The song isn’t on the upcoming Red album that we are all waiting for. It will be one of two Taylor songs the upcoming album from the band Big Red Machine.
Though, if you are like me you aren’t really familiar with Big Red Machine. They are an indie folk rock band from Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon, who worked with Taylor on Folklore and Evermore.
And my love for those albums tells me that I will be buying this upcoming album. The other song that Taylor is on is entitled, “Birch.” I can’t wait to hear that one.
“You come a long way, open the blinds, let me see your face / You wouldn’t be the first renegade, need somebody / Is it insensitive for me to say ‘Get your sh-t together so I can love you’? / Is it really your anxiety that stops you from givin’ me everything? / Or do you just not want to?” Taylor sings on Renegade.
Taylor actually tweeted about the song just after midnight. Of course, I was fast asleep. I have no excuses for my stupidity.
She wrote, “When @Aaron_Dessner came into my life, I was ushered into his world of free-flowing creativity where you don’t overthink, you just make music. A song we wrote for his project @BRMadjv (which also features High ⚡️Justin Vernon ✨) is out! It’s called Renegade.”
