Taylor Swift released Call It What You Want yesterday as the latest Reputation preview and it’s a carefree, laidback tune about letting go of her dramas and finding true happiness in love. If Gorgeous is a gushy anthem about the butterflies stage of a new romance then ‘Call It’ is about feeling totally comfortable and believing that nothing else matters. The drama that she forgets when she looks at him is still very prominent in her mind, though, as she takes swings at the “liars” who destroyed her ‘castle’. Kim? Kanye? Katy? Who knows…

“My castle crumbled overnight / I brought a knife to a gunfight / They took the crown but it’s alright / All the liars are calling me one,” she sings in the first verse. Ouch!

Production wise, ‘Call It What You Want’ is the most stripped back of the Reputation songs we’ve heard so far, with none of the heavier tones of ‘…Ready For It?’ or the pop sheen of ‘Gorgeous’.

 

 

Taylor’s previous relationships have been highly publicised and scrutinised but there’s very little known about her current romance with British actor Joe Alwyn, which she seems very protective over in the new track. While she used to dream of being saved in Love Story, here she’s simply happy that someone loves her despite that burden of a Reputation she speaks of. Now that we’re four songs into the album, it’s getting harder to choose our favourite but we love this!
