Brace yourselves accordingly: Taylor Swift is back for more.

After shaking the entire nation into a frenzy with “Shake It Off” (haters are still reportedly reeling), the singer-songstress is quickly following up her lead single with a brand new 1989 track. And, based on the rather rustic Instagram teaser photo she just posted (above), it’s likely going to be a new song called “Out Of The Woods.”

The song also seems like it’s going to be an album standout, as highlighted in Swift’s cover story in Rolling Stone — and something the One Direction fans might be talking about, too. Check out all the “Out Of The Woods” details after the jump.

From Rolling Stone:

Of all the songs on the album that seem to be about [Harry] Styles, the most intriguing one is “Out of the Woods.” Co-written by [Jack] Antonoff, it’s a frantic tale of a relationship where, Swift says, “every day was a struggle. Forget making plans for life – we were just trying to make it to next week.” The most interesting part comes when Swift sings, “Remember when you hit the brakes too soon/Twenty stitches in a hospital room.” She says it was inspired by a snowmobile ride with an ex who lost control and wrecked it so badly that she saw her life flash before her eyes. Both of them had to go to the ER, although Swift wasn’t hurt. She corrects herself: “Not as hurt.”

Yikes. What else will she have to say about their relationship?
