Taylor Swift fans are bound to be pretty stoked this week, as the 22-year-old singer just announced the details of her next album. Simply titled Red, the album’s cover art tantalizes with a black and white, very up-close photo of Swift’s face, looking down, and her lips standing out in a blood red hue.
"I have some really big news, I'm really excited because I have a new album coming out October 22 and I wanted to tell you about it and I wanted to tell you all about it right now," Swift told a crowd in Nashville, Tennessee.
"We've already done so much work on this, we've been working on it for two years," Swift continued.
Swift revealed that the album title is derived from a song on the album, but it is not the first single she’ll be releasing. The first song we will here is “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” Yikes, wonder who that burn is intended for? (Am I the only one hoping it is more John Mayer bashing?)
Regarding a question about whether she would share who inspired the songs on her upcoming album, Swift responded, “It's pretty difficult to come up with because I know that you guys are going to figure them out and so I'm trying not to be too cryptic with it, but I'm also trying not to, ya know, give it all away. With the last album it was this guessing game and people pretty much figured everything out ... I thought I was much more clever and cryptic about it than I really was.”
Swift tweeted to her fans on August 13th, “‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ will be available @ iTunes and Google Play sometime tonight! Keep checking back and I love you.”
The song, like all of Swift’s tunes, is incredibly catchy and is guaranteed to get stuck in your head. It marks a full shift into the pop realm, however, as there is not one thing about her new single that could be argued as falling into the country genre, where she got her start. Although I am personally sorry to see her switching over to being yet another beautiful young pop star (as if the world needs another one of those), I am happy for her success and will hold out hope that she’ll go back to her roots eventually.
