New Album Alert: “RED” By Taylor Swift

October 24, 2012

“All those emotions spanning from intense love, intense frustration, intense jealousy, all those feelings are red.” – Taylor Swift

With her new album, “RED” climbing up the charts already, Taylor Swift has once again pulled off a brilliant album. “RED” came out on Monday, October 22nd at midnight where it reached #1 on iTunes in only 30 minutes. The album is currently #1 in 33 countries… it’s not like that’s a surprise, I mean, it is TAYLOR SWIFT!

“RED” consists of 16 tracks, as well as a deluxe album that has a total of 22 tracks! Due to the fact that Taylor is 22 years old, this clarifies the meaning behind the number. It is pretty crazy, but who’s complaining?

The album has plenty of typical “Taylor” songs but, she really out did herself by mixing it up and throwing in a bunch of fun, happy and thrilling tracks as well. A few of these include “Stay Stay Stay”, “22”, “I Knew You Were Trouble”, “Starlight” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”.

It is rather surprising that Taylor has two duets featured on the album because she doesn’t usually do them. The first duet sits at track #10 which is called “The Last Time” featuring Snow Patrol’s, Gary Lightbody. It is extremely slow but when you listen to it you can hear the passion in both of their voices as they sing it. The second duet on the album is with British singer, Ed Sheeran. The track is called “Everything Has Changed” and is absolutely remarkable. Taylor and Ed’s voices mesh together so well that they complement each other.

With a multitude of appearances that Taylor is preparing for, this is just the start. Taylor performed in NYC today on Good Morning America where she had an outdoor concert, performing songs from “RED”. On Thursday October 25th, Taylor will be doing another outdoor concert that is airing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The “RED” epidemic is just beginning, and it will only get bigger and better from here. Now we have to wait patiently, twiddling our thumbs, for a tour to be announced. Who knows when it will happen, but we hope it’s sometime soon!

If you haven’t bought “RED” yet, I advise you do so immediately… it is absolutely INCREDIBLE. You can purchase it on iTunes for only $14.99 here:
