Today, scores of Taylor Swift fans are seeing Red – its tracklist, that is.
The country-bred pop star unveiled the contents of her upcoming fourth studio album, due Oct. 22, and gave fans an idea of what topics the disc’s 16 tracks might tackle. At first glance, it looks like a lot of the songs might be about – surprise! – boys, though her stance changes depending on the tune (or boy, presumably). The Max Martin-produced smash “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” for instance, is immediately followed by a number titled “Stay Stay Stay,” which should definitely send mixed signals to whichever guy was unlucky enough to get on Swift’s bad side.
Take a look at the complete track list below:
1. State Of Grace
4. I Knew You Were Trouble
5. All Too Well
7. I Almost Do
8. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
9. Stay Stay Stay
10. The Last Time
11. Holy Ground
12. Sad Beautiful Tragic
13. The Lucky One
14. Everything Has Changed
16. Begin Again
But that wasn’t all T-Swift was up to today. She also paid a video visit to Good Morning America this morning and introduced the nation to a snippet of “I Knew You Were Trouble,” which hits iTunes at midnight tonight. “It’s a song that’s one of my favorites on the album because it sounds just as chaotic as the feeling was when I wrote it,” Swift said from Europe. She went on to explain that song is about “being frustrated with yourself” for falling for a person you know you shouldn’t have.
