Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album will be released worldwide on October 22nd, with Taylor herself announcing it during a live YouTube web chat with her fans. Entitled Red, the album will be released containing 16 tracks.
After writing her last album (Speak Now) entirely by herself, for this record Taylor collaborated with several artists, producers, and songwriters she had always wanted to work with.
“For the last two years, I’ve been working on an album called Red,” Taylor says. “I called it Red because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that’s fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions…in retrospect, it all looks red.”
The first single from Red, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback), has already arrived at radio and will be available today at iTunes and Google Play, and beginning tomorrow worldwide at all digital retail outlets. Album pre-sale dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
I’m exited, because after seeing Taylor play live last year at one of her Sydney concerts (courtesy of Elizabeth Arden), I love her even more, she’s a very special human being and I want to be friend with her!
