The tune features the 22-year-old's signature lyrics, but the music is surprisingly more rock-oriented than what we're used to hearing from Taylor. Electric guitars and pulsing bass lines frame the country star's melodic voice in the power ballad, which we think is yet another hit.
The song, which follows 'Safe & Sound,' the lead single from the movie. Taylor recorded the initial tune with the Civil Wars, and has performed it a handful of times on stage.
