On this Swift Day, August 13th, we got some BIG news from Taylor Swift about her fourth album on her live web chat. The live web chat was held in Nashville. At the event, Taylor was surrounded by thirty or so very devoted fans and took questions from the audience, Google + calls, and YouTube comments.
In the show, Taylor revealed the cover of her newest album as well as the title, “Red,” which was inspired by the color Taylor perceives as being related to the emotions of love, jealousy, and heartbreak. The album will consist of sixteen songs written by Taylor and various co writers. To me, the most exciting revelation was that a duet written and recorded by British artist, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor will appear on the album. I am postive that their voices will blend together beautifully and we can expect a very heartfelt song from the two of them!!
Despite Taylor’s preface to her new single, the song is actually not “romantic, sensitive, or touchy.” The song entitled “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is an empowering pop song and is seriously sticking it to someone who hurt Taylor in the past. If you have not heard the song already, it is now available for purchase on iTunes!
If for any reason you missed the live show, you can watch it on YouTube.
The full album will be released October 22, 2012!!!
