Published Jan 31, 2020Taylor Swift has unveiled a new song called "Only the Young," which appears in a new documentary about the singer.
Miss Americana hits Netflix today, following a Sundance premiere. It was directed by Lana Wilson and follows Swift as she finally begins to voice her opinions to the public.
Swift released a statement about the new song. It reads:
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. It was hard to see so many people feel like they had canvassed and done everything and tried so hard. 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.
