Hot New Single: Begin Again – Taylor Swift

September 26, 2012

Well everyone, Taylor Swift has done it again! This country sweetheart has released another single off her new album RED that is hitting the shelves on October 22nd, 2012.

Taylor has recently told us that she will be releasing a new song off her album every week until it’s released. The first single on this four week endeavor is called “Begin Again” and it’s the second single to be released off RED. Everyone knows that Taylor’s first single off the album, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was released quite a while back and is very different from what we expected from Taylor. Unlike “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together“, “Begin Again” is a very slow and calm ballad, which is exactly what Swift fans aka ‘Swifties’ wanted to hear.

“Begin Again” is definitely a song about a break up but instead of Taylor singing about missing the boy she loved, she sings about getting back out in the dating world and exploring again. The lyrics in this song are extremely powerful as she sings, “I’ve been spending the last 8 months thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end, but on a Wednesday, in a café, I watched it begin again”. Taylor is explaining that although she thought love would never come for her again because of her past, it did and she watched a new relationship blossom, and begin again.

Taylor always finds a way to connect her songs with her fans so they can relate to them. I believe this song speaks to her teenage fans because a lot of them have gone through break ups; but this song tells them not to give up because there is someone who will make them happy.

I’m sure I’m not the only one that is overly excited about Taylor releasing THREE more songs over the next three weeks, so come back next week to share in our excitement with the release of the next single!
