Taylor Swift went and pulled a Beyoncé by slyly releasing her new single and its partnering visuals, above, entitled Shake It Off during her highly publicized Yahoo live-stream on August 18th. Featuring an upbeat tone, big vocals, and a colorful, dance filled music video, the first offering from Taylor’s impending album 1989 officially marks Swift’s departure from country music. The empowering Shake It Off is riddled with themes about overcoming rumors, stereotypes and heartbreak. The single is also officially available for purchase on iTunes. 1989 will be Taylor Swift‘s fifth studio album – and first full pop album – and will be available in stores and online retailers October 27th.
