Who else parked their ass in front of the computer today to catch Taylor Swift reeling off scripted answers to a bunch of prearranged fan questions live on Youtube? You can bet your wig that I did, so if you missed it, here’s the juice on Tay-Tay’s fiery return.
Taylor’s new album is titled Red and it drops October 22nd. The title represents the emotion she feels when guys screw her around and break her heart or something.
Red will have a whopping 16 tracks, and that’s without the bonuses. She’s co-written everything on this album, as opposed to being the sole songwriter like she was on 2010′s Speak Now, and she’s collaborated with a lot of interesting people–including the godawful Ed Shereen, who she duets with on one of the tracks. Don’t worry though, because she’s also worked with Max Martin!
Yup, Max Martin and Taylor Swift, together at last. If any of you know the song Max produced for Carrie Underwood a few years back called “Quitter”, then you know that this collaboration will most likely be free of all flaws.
Taylor’s new single is titled “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, and it hits iTunes tonight. She premiered the audio for it during the chat, and it confirms that the previous rumors I posted were correct–it’s total pop. Super catchy and super radio-friendly too, but the lack of country flavor will definitely disappoint some people.
