Taylor Swift 'Welcome to New York' Performance Live on Letterman, Watch Here (VIDEO)
Taylor Swift's new album 1989 released on Monday and she has been on television everywhere doing promotion. On Tuesday, she was in New York to make an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman".
Taylor decided to perform the opening track on the new album "Welcome to New York", which was obviously fitting being in the great city. You can check out her performance above.
The 24-year-old, who was named New York City's Global Welcome Ambassador, also appeared on "The View" on Wednesday, and announced that 100 percent of the proceeds made from her ode to the Big Apple will be donated to New York City public schools.
Her new album is already on track for one million record sales in her first week according to Billboard. She makes the first artist to sell over a million copies in 2014 and also becomes the first artist ever to pass one million first week record sales for three straight albums. Her previous two albums Speak Now (2010) and Red (2012) also passed the million mark in the first week.
In an era of low record sales in the music business, Taylor shows that big things (and sales) are still possible if all of the stars align.
If you buy Taylor's album 1989 at Target next week you'll get three bonus songs on the deluxe version, which is pretty great.
You can release her album on iTunes by clicking here. Swift's first single "Shake It Off" immediately went to No.1 on the Billboard 100.
Taylor shared in her Yahoo! interview that the reason for the title was that it is her birth date (December 13, 1989) but also that she likes to have two years in between albums to see her growth. She shared that her new album would be her first full on pop album and inspired from the music of the 80's that she has been listening to.
"I really loved the chances they were taking. I loved how bold it was," she said. "It was, apparently, a time of limitless potential. ... The idea of endless possibility was kind of a theme in the last year of my life."
