Taylor Swift has released the lead song off her new album.

On the heels of "Shake It Off" and "Out of the Woods," the 24-year old musical sensation unveiled "Welcome to New York" at midnight, another catch track that will kick off the upcoming CD, "1989."

Give it a listen here:

"I started the album with ‘Welcome to New York’ because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years,” said Swift via press release.

Did this video of a dog continuously fetching a tennis ball into a giant leaf pile not get you excited for autumn?

That's a shame. But perhaps Janessa Leigh can help.

The singer has posted an impressive parody on YouTune of her very own version of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."

The track is titled "Because It's Fall" and, yes, it will also get stuck in your head for the next few days.

That’s okay, though, because the witty lyrics reference crunchy leafs… pumpkin spice lattes… apple picking… Thanksgiving… and the donning of a lot of flannel.

Because it's fall, people. Because it's fall.

Kids are positively killing it these days.

Did you catch that 11-year old who moved and grooved and blew us away with her dancing to All About That Bass?

Or the 8-year old who recreated every step of Patrick Swayze's part in the iconic Dirty Dancing finale scene?

Now, we’ve come across another 11-year old, this one a girl name Sapphire who needs nothing but her guitar to cover Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.

Like the original version, will this one get stuck in your head for hours on end? Probably. But it's well worth it.

At midnight today, Taylor Swift released "Out of the Woods" on iTunes, the second track off her upcoming album, "1989."

The chorus continuously asks whether the singer and an unnamed paramour are “out of the woods yet,” a question that could likely apply to any of Taylor’s ex-boyfriends.

But many astute listeners believe the single is centered on Harry Styles, pointing to a couple instances where Swift is clearly making a reference to her time with the One Direction hunk.

FIRST, Swift croons about how “last December, we were built to fall apart.”

And those in the know recall that Taylor and Harry pretty much went public in December 2012, holding hands in New York City and going to tattoo parlors together.

Ready to have another Taylor Swift song stuck in your head for weeks at a time?

The singer has shaken off criticism of her cat and released "Out of the Woods," her second single off the upcoming album 1989, which will be available on October 27.

And while Swift's initial album release (the very, very, very catchy "Shake It Off") addressed her critics, "Out of the Woods" turns her attention back to Taylor's favorite single-writing subject:

MEN.

Chalk up another honor for Taylor Swift.

The singer has just been named 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year! She will officially receive this title at Billboard’s ninth annual Women in Music Awards event on December 12.

She's Never Been in Love!
Yes, the woman who's as famous for her dating life as for her music says that when she looks back on her relationships, she realizes none of them were "real love."

Writes the publication for why it has presented Swift with such an honor.

"As one of the most influential artists of her generation, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts. Over the course of her career, she’s charted 60 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 - the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006."

That really is impressive.

Meghan Trainor of "All About That Bass" fame is all about shaking off the haters, and as a result, paid tribute to Taylor Swift's latest hit with a unique twist.

During an appearance on the Dan and Maz radio show, Trainor gave "Shake It Off' an acoustic spin, aided by only a ukelele and her own killer vocals:

As if that weren't awesome (and surprisingly catchy) enough, Meghan Trainor briefly rapped near the end in a special shout-out to Taylor Swift herself:

"So Taylor, shake 'em off, don't let 'em get to ya / Go ahead and dance like there ain't nobody watchin' ya / Shake like a polaroid picture / You got the fans, we wanna dance witcha."

Okay, Meghan, you rule. We are big fans. But do you troll your own fan sites and post in the forums about all the festive things you love about fall?

We'd love to see her replicate Taylor Swift's effort in that department.

Altogether now: “Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate..."

On an edition of E! News last Thursday, bullying Dance Moms choreographer took aim at Taylor Swift, saying she isn’t a fan of the singer’s dance moves in the video for "Shake It Off."

"She should have had the Abby Lee Miller Treatment as a child," Miller said. "The dancers are wonderful. I love Taylor Swift - I think she's a great role model for the girls - but I like her sitting in a chair with her guitar, singing."

Bring It On
What do you have to say about cheerleaders NOW, Taylor?

Clearly, Miller doesn't get it, a fact we deride each week when we watch Dance Moms online and see her clash with parents.

Swift knows she's an awkward dancer. She's embracing that fact in her latest video. Sheesh!

We already knew that Taylor Swift was a crossover star, considering her success in both the country and pop music worlds.

But we still didn't see this coming!

The artist - whose fan base typically consists of teenage females - has been honored by the members of the Delta Sigma Phi Beta Mu fraternity at Transylvania University via one of the greatest lip dubs you'll ever witness.

It starts with one guy getting woken up with a hangover and popping a couple pills and then - BAM! - we're off and singing! Or pretending to sing, at least.

Turns out, just like anyone else who has heard this catchy tune, these college students simply can't "Shake It Off."

Pretty amazing, right? Sort of puts those Barack Obama lip dubs and Brian Williams lip dubs to shame.

But that doesn't mean we can't all hang out with the superstar away from the set of her music video.

In the following footage, Swift talks about her "Shake It Off" video, including its inspiration and what went into various aspects of filming. It sure sounds like Taylor worked hard to bring it to life!

What was so exhausting for her? And what did Swift do any time she had a break? Watch and find out!

In other Taylor Swift news, did you know she cries when drunk? Really! The artist told this to Rolling Stone herself.
