“I started the album with “Welcome To NEW YORK” because NEW YORK has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years,” said TAYLOR. “It’s like an electric city, and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism. I saw NEW YORK as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can hear that reflected in this music and in this song.”
