One of the things you can expect is that I’m really trying to challenge myself in every single way possible to make music that doesn’t sound like music I’ve made before, when you get into the album there are a lot of late eighties sounds and vocal stylings and production elements. We were really just playing around with this album and didn’t limit ourselves, what ended up happening was we made an album that really sounds like an album, it’s really sonically cohesive, and I’m really proud of it.
Isn’t Nicki doing it too? I love Nicki. She’s so pretty.

Taylor Swift about the iHeartRadio Music Festival
One thing that inspired this song was when we went on our very first headling tour a few years ago. I used to stand there before I went on stage, and I would listen to the crowd making the most amazing, magical, loud screaming sounds. I would hear it and I would sit there and think ‘I can’t believe I get to hear that sound one time in my life.’ That I could never get this melody out of of my head until I finally wrote a new song and I called that song ‘Long Live.’ Thank you so much for screaming for us. This song is completely, a hundred percent for you.
