Taylor Swift's New Song Is, Like, "Sweeter Than Fiction," Y'all

Grab your cobalt blazer and curl your hair all Molly Ringwald-style, because Taylor Swift's taking you to prom. The country-pop star's got herself a new '80s-infused song made for gymnasium dances and belting in your car with the windows down.
Featuring fun.'s Jack Antonoff, "Sweeter Than Fiction" combines the best of John Hughes with Swift's bubbly aesthetic. It's no love song, though. Swift penned the uplifting "I Knew You When" kind of track for the upcoming Paul Potts biopic, the store clerk who went on to becoming an opera sensation after winning Britain’s Got Talent in 2007. It's pure ear candy you can consume all day long without the risk of cavities. Eat it up, y'all, and then go back for seconds. It's sweeter the second time around.
