if you go to her itunes splash page and sort by release date, it's the top one. I can't listen to it right now though.

So the new single... its awfully 4 on the floor. The most pop thing she's done. I like the chorus. I don't like the little talky asides, or the whole weird recorded casual conversation in the middle (comes across kind of.. mean). I dunno... we'll see how it grows on me. We (Whee!)!

chorus is pretty awkward, song seems to be lacking the spontaneity of her earlier stuff

Yeah, true. But something about Taylor Swift worship makes me want to incinerate the entire country.

me too, no doubt. just don't like the "children" thing, tbh.

is the "find your piece of mind / with some indie record that's cooler than mine" line playful or aggrieved? i guess in the context of the overall cheekiness of the record it's suitable?

i'm not sure how i feel about this song but WELCOME BACK, BOO

tauheed & cambria (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 06:21 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, it's not aggrieved at all...jokey and ever so slightly "I get it, but c'mon!".

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 06:25 (seven years ago) link

The song's personality is 100% Taylor Swift, but structure-wise it's like a mashup of Avril Lavigne and Carly Rae Jepsen which might seem a little like an unnecessarily panicky plea for radio appeal in 2012—not that she's ever had trouble with radio. So idgi but I <3 it all the same.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 06:30 (seven years ago) link

yeah it's weird to say about taylor swift... but this is really POP

tauheed & cambria (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 06:45 (seven years ago) link

yeah the first comparisons that came to mind for me were carly rae jepsen and that hot chelle rae song from last year -- but then again the first thing i thought of when i heard crj was taylor swift. not rly sure why i thought of hot chelle rae tho cuz it doesn't really seem similar at all (+ the comparison seems insulting)... maybe rhythmically similar in parts?

teledyldonix, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 07:04 (seven years ago) link

hot chelle rae jepsen

teledyldonix, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 07:04 (seven years ago) link

in any case yes this seems very pop-radio-chasing, not that that is bad

Nashville, TN – August 13, 2012 – Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album will be released worldwide on October 22nd, Taylor herself announced this evening during a live YouTube web chat with her fans.

Entitled Red, the album will be released on Big Machine Records and contains 16 tracks. After writing her last album (Speak Now) entirely by herself, for this record Taylor collaborated with several artists, producers, and songwriters she had always wanted to work with.

“For the last two years, I've been working on an album called Red,” Taylor says. “I called it Red because of the tumultuous, crazy adventures in love and loss that it chronicles. In my mind, when you experience love that's fast paced and out of control and mixes infatuation, jealousy, frustration, miscommunication, and all of those lovely emotions…in retrospect, it all looks red.”

The first single from Red, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” (written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback) has already arrived at radio and will be available today at iTunes and Google Play, and beginning tomorrow worldwide at all digital retail outlets.

tauheed & cambria (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 07:33 (seven years ago) link

max goin back to the OG teenpop days

tauheed & cambria (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 07:34 (seven years ago) link

Man, I hope she didn't completely ditch Nathan Chapman (or her particular brand of country pop) for the album. I can totally see how this could fit into one of her a;bums, but it's not really the type of thing I can listen to a whole album of.

spanky hotel frogstrot (how's life), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 08:16 (seven years ago) link

yeah I'm surprised how pop she's gone with this, and I miss the songwriting tightness & lyrical specifities et. al. that are her trademark (though that indie record line totally compensates - just imagining her face when she's singing that is making me irl lol) when it doesn't seem like she needs to go to max martin for a hit. BUT speak now didn't really produce any massive hits in the vein of fearless and the general response to "mine" as a lead single was that it was underwhelming (even though I thought it was still a+ great) and I figure that she wants the huge commerical success on the pop format now when she's at her prime in the knowledge that she's guaranteed decades of success in country when she wants a bit later on anyway, so she might as well let her hair down a bit right now, and maybe even get some big worldwide success a la shania. also I imagine this is something of a red (yeah yeah) herring and the album will have a lot more darker mood pieces like "safe & sound" - and just a whole load of experimentation by the sound of it - and this is just a case of pulling in the listeners to go and buy the lp.

also I really like how this added to ther huge successes of "call me maybe" and "boyfriend" is i think forming a new pop consensus, which is starting to move the top 40 format away from the gross pounding guetta/calvin harris beats shit and getting back to an earlier age of teen pop. or maybe that's just my wishful thinking.

prolego, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 08:40 (seven years ago) link

can see this probably alienating some country radio unless there's a banjo mix. but then country radio is all about the cash so i'm probably wrong. i mean they played that terrible sugarland steampunk thing to death.

anyway, don't know if i like this too much. not much of the old taylor in it :-(

Jamie_ATP, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 08:42 (seven years ago) link

I'm not enthusiastic in general about her album being filled with collabs - I trust her, but not her friends, and I don't really want a 'different sound'.

But this song is great and sounds like a huge hit immediately, unlike Mine, which was great but didn't sound like a hit at all, and so it's definitely job well done in starting off the campaign differently from Speak Now. Hopefully the album is a Taylor-ish whole and not bits and pieces of other attempts at hits, though.

abcfsk, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:07 (seven years ago) link

i think i saw buzzings on a blog somewhere that there may be a mix for country radio

the album will have a lot more darker mood pieces like "safe & sound"

i am hopeful that this is the case - that song in particular has grown on me quite a lot since it came out

Hope he's as audible as Colbie Caillat on 'Breathe'.

i really like this and also the red lipstick shots have me swooning like crazy <3 <3 <3

but ew i refuse to get anything with ed sheeran on it

a hoy hoy, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:44 (seven years ago) link

i always though breathe could have used a little more Caillat, tbh. i've never heard Ed Sheeran. He looks like a smarmy douche.

spanky hotel frogstrot (how's life), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:46 (seven years ago) link

I remember when Speak Now came out, there was a little processed drum loop on one of the songs and I was like "god, don't do this Taylor" and now this song basically sounds like P¡nk or something. But it`s not a particularly novel take on the P¡nk thing.

spanky hotel frogstrot (how's life), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 09:56 (seven years ago) link

Like, and it's not to say that Taylor couldn't do that sort of pop well, as a departure from the country/pop/rock thing that's worked really well for her, but god those drums stomp all over everything in the song.

These attitudes define these records for me and SUPPORT their imperfection (the s/t, for sure).

Name a single imperfection on Fearless.

glasses jacket jerfman (how's life), Thursday, 24 April 2014 12:19 (five years ago) link

Name a single imperfection on Fearless.

Some of Chapman's production on the power ballads especially ("White Horse," "You're Not Sorry," "Change") is overwrought and cheesy--the wailing electric guitar solo in the closing bars of the album epitomizes this. They're not technical imperfections, per se, but I think folks like Paul Worley, Frank Liddell, or even a Justin Meldal-Johnsen would have approached these songs differently.

Again: The production works, however, because of the inherent simplicity, naivety, earnestness, and authenticity of Swift and her lyrics. The idea of an 18-year-old closing her 2nd album with a song about overcoming seemingly insurmountable, lifelong struggles of navigating the Music Industrial Complex to succeed is pretty hilarious. It's glam metal -esque, which, I guess, explains that guitar solo...

Indexed, Thursday, 24 April 2014 18:30 (five years ago) link

Oh, I'm scheduled to run a hair metal ballot poll sometime in the near future, so will remain unconvinced by your overwrought guitar solos argument.

glasses jacket jerfman (how's life), Thursday, 24 April 2014 20:43 (five years ago) link

I've never really liked "White Horse", which has always struck me as sounding like the product of a "write a Taylor Swift song" school exercise.

Hints dropped -

Rock direction? Cool, some of her best songs lean rock

Max Martin all over it? Like the guy, like their tracks together but think she loses some uniquely t swifty qualities by leaning on his familiar production. Or she will if that's all we get.

Taylor Swift, gardener and cat enthusiast, killed you Sunday when she visited a 7-year-old cancer patient and offered to sing him any song he wanted, or just do some of her favorite things, like playing with Play-Doh or talking about Spider-Man or whatever. Authorities say the cause of your death was drowning in a flood of your own tears.

. . . Medical examiners placed your time of death at around 5:05 in this video, when Taylor reached the chorus of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," and Jordan started singing along at the top of his little lungs.
