We don't know what we love more: When Taylor Swift releases a new song, or a new cookie recipe!

This morning, the full-time singer and part-time baker (and InStyle's November cover girl) released the second single from her highly anticipated new album, 1989, which drops Oct. 27. The mesmerizing new song is titled "Out of the Woods" and was co-written by Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist for the band Fun. and Lena Dunham’s boyfriend. Dunham (a member of the Taylor Swift BFF brigade) celebrated the launch with a throwback ’gram of Swift and Antonoff making music in her living room, confessing that she was "kvelling" over the song's already chart-topping success.
