Taylor Swift announces release of her 4th studio album

Multi-platinum recording artist, Taylor Swift, is set to release her 4th studio album titled “Red” on October 22nd. Following the release of 2010’s “Speak Now” which sold more than 1 million copies within its first week, chances are this one won’t disappoint either. The short, yet simple title “Red” captures Swift’s various emotions which she explores through her songs. In true Taylor Swift fashion, she seems to be sticking with her famous theme of relationship-related songs as she continues to divulge her deepest feelings regarding the relationships she has experienced over the past two years. Swift comments on the album title saying, “There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.”

Swift’s new album will have 16 new songs, one of which has already been recently released. During a live web chat from Nashville, Tennessee on Monday, Swift, dressed in red, took questions from fans and performed her new single called “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” “Really touching and sensitive” is how Swift sarcastically described the new track, seeing as it’s a shout out to one of her ex-boyfriends. Of course it’s up to the fans to figure out which mystery man the superstar may be referring to this time. Some of her previous heartbreaks include John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal. Following the release of this single, it shot to the top spot of the iTunes charts. Swift rushed to Twitter expressing her excitement.

Unlike “Speak Now” which was written completely by Swift, fans can expect several co-writes on the upcoming album, one of which is a duet with popular British artist Ed Sheeran as well as collaboration with Swedish music producer Max Martin.
