Taylor Swift Releases Album News and New Single

August 14, 2012

Fangirling is officially inevitable when Taylor Swift releases new music. Not only did Taylor release an amazing new single tonight, but tons of album information along with it.

Taylor announced last week on twitter that she would be having a web chat tonight at 7PM/EST. If you were thinking she would just sit in front of a camera and talk, you’re wrong! Taylor made this fun for her fans and viewers, she even flew out fans from all around the world to come and sit with her live while she shared all this new information with the world.

The chat began with Taylor introducing herself and explaining what to expect from the 25 minute long chat. Taylor’s fans, also known as “Swifties” have been waiting very patiently for the big news which is finally here, so buckle your seatbelts because this information might blow you away!

Taylor explained that her new album is called “Red”, will be released October 22nd, 2012 and will have a total of 16 songs. Immediately after this incredible, yet shocking news, Taylor showed us the album cover which is obviously perfect in every way. Taylor explained the meaning behind the album title in a way that was easy to understand, “I wrote a song called ‘Red’ and thinking about what that song means to me and all the different emotions on this album they’re all pretty much about the tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships I’ve experienced in the last two years and all those emotions fanning from intense love, intense frustration, intense jealousy, confusion, all of that in my mind, all those emotions are red.” For Taylor to explain what the album name means is extremely personal, but knowing Taylor and her deep connection with her fans, it is not a surprise that she shared this with them.

As soon as the screaming and shrieking calmed down, Taylor informed us that she will be answering a bunch of questions from fans in the audience, as well as ones who have joined via webcam. One of the biggest questions Taylor answered was, “What was it like to work with Ed Sheeran and will the track be on the album?” As usual, Taylor drops a big one on us explaining that the track that herself and Ed wrote together, will in fact, be on the album and it was amazing to work with him. This is extremely exciting because Ed and Taylor are very good friends and it will be very different for both of them as their writing styles are extremely unique.

As the questions keep coming, Taylor gets more and more down to earth. With her long, yet hilarious answers, facial expressions and hand gestures, she kept everyone smiling. With the chat coming to an end, Taylor announces that she is releasing her first single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”. She actually played it on chat so everyone could hear it as she mouthed the words and added her own humour to it. She explained that the song is about an ex-boyfriend and that they “are never, ever, ever, getting back together… like ever”. Not only is this much different from Taylor’s “country girl” style, it is just a glimpse of what is to come from Taylor’s new album in the future.

Make sure to keep an eye out for more information coming from Taylor in the future regarding “Red”, because it’s going to be good!
