Taylor Swift Describes Color of Heartache on ‘Red’ Title Track – ‘RED’ Album

Taylor Swift – Red

With just a few weeks until Taylor Swift releases her hotly anticipated new album, Red, the singer stoked the flames a bit more by streaming the record’s earworm of a title track.

Certainly more country-fried than the massive pop thump of first single “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” the twangy “Red” does sneak in some Top-40 tropes – the chopped and repeated last syllable of “red” in the chorus, for example – but is overall more reminiscent of Swift’s break-out broken-hearted anthems. With banjos flying, strings swelling and guitars wailing, Swift keeps her lyrics simple but effective: “Loving him was blue like I’ve never known / Missing him was dark grey, all alone / Forgetting him was like ruing to know somebody you never met / But loving him was red.”

You can check out the new track, as well as another new Red cut, “Begin Again.” Red is out October 22nd.
