Taylor Swift - First Listen: Taylor Swift New Track 'State Of Grace'

Taylor Swift seems to be leaking her new album bit by bit, with State Of Grace the latest to be revealed. This one's made a pretty huge impression, though, given that it's already gone to the top spot iTunes. Nice work Swifty. State Of Grace is the fourth track that the artist has revealed from her new album 'Red', plus the actual lead-off single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', and given the reaction to the others it looks like the star's got another hit on her hands.

"I wrote this song about when you first fall in love with someone ... the possibilities, kind of thinking about the different ways that it could go," she said. "It's a really big sound. To me, this sounds like the feeling of falling in love in an epic way ... I hope you like it" MTV reported her telling Good Morning America has she previewed a clip of the new track yesterday.

So is it any good? It's not bad, actually. Known as a country artist, Swift is about as country as Iron Maiden are these days (possibly an exaggeration), but this is a relatively straight up soft-rock song, complete with a hooky chorus and a robust tempo and a big panoramic sound. It's really not too bad, and from the reaction so far it looks like the star is on for critical as well as commercial success.
