Tonight, during Scandal, Taylor Swift debuted yet another song from Reputation, which officially drops at midnight (but leaked earlier today).

The song, "New Year's Day," stands out from the singer's other Reputation era songs in that it's, well, very Old Taylor. The song is just Taylor and a piano, no autotune or extra production. The TGIT performance saw Taylor serenading a room full of adoring fans with the track that would have fit in better on Red than Reputation.

So how is the world reacting to Swift's latest offering? With mixed opinions. Some are in love, declaring it their new favorite track.

Others are...less enamored, to say the least.
