Taylor Swift released another track from her upcoming album and took fans by surprise by the vulnerable and honest lyrics.
Taylor Swift dropped 'The Archer' from her upcoming seventh studio album, taking fans by surprise with the new track as it's a completely different tone to the upbeat 'ME!' and 'You Need To Calm Down' which people assumed would be the theme of 'Lover' and people are absolutely loving it.
The star announced she was releasing the track- but not as a single- during an Instagram live, wearing an Archer necklace, which is also the symbol of her star sign, Sagittarius.
Fans took to Twitter to praise the singer for the emotional and relatable song that they weren't exactly expecting, with one twitter user writing "am i crying because the archer is so relatable and painful or am i crying because taylor swift was sad who knows" and another saying "TAYLOR SWIFT JUST WRECKED MY HEART WITH THE ARCHER. SHE DID THAT. ONCE AGAIN."
