Taylor Swift releases new song "Only The Young" same day as Miss Americana
Taylor Swift hasn't always been known for getting political, however with her newest album Lover, Swift has been pushing boundaries and expressing her views.
The new song features a few not-so-subtle references toward the current political climate in the U.S.
A clip from the song reads, "So everyday now/ You brace for the sound/ You only heard on TV/ You go to class scared/ Wondering where/ The best hiding spot would be".
Swift has said in her documentary that she wanted to find her voice, despite cautions from her publicist.
“I wrote it after the midterm elections, when there were so many young people who rallied for their candidate, whether it was a senator or congressman or congresswoman,” she explained to Variety magazine. “It was hard to see so many people feel like they had canvassed and done everything and tried so hard."
Swift continued, “I saw a lot of young people’s hopes dashed. And I found that to be particularly tragic, because young people are the people who feel the worst effects of gun violence, and student loans and trying to figure out how to start their lives and how to pay their bills, and climate change, and are we going to war — all these horrific situations that we find ourselves facing right now.”
Not only does Swift open up about overcoming an eating disorder in Miss Americana, but she also opens up about how she found her voice to use her public platform as a way to make serious change.
Miss Americana is available for stream on Netflix January 31.
