Red seems to be a popular color lately. As a possible way to promote her new album, Red, Taylor Swift has been rocking quite a few dresses with that color. Just look at what she wore today to Good Morning America — a red dress of course. She has been wearing quite a bit of that, even to the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
The only thing I dislike about her outfit for the show was the jacket. I feel like a black one would have dressed it up better. Swift’s jacket, in my personal opinion, drowned out the beauty of the dress. Her outfit had so much more potential.
Red launched last night on iTunes. I find this one is different from her others, but how exactly?
First of all, let me start by saying my love for Taylor had been dwindling. Her music was becoming stale. It was like hearing the same song over and over again, just tweaked slightly. This album has rekindled my love for her more than I ever expected. The tempos are different, her lyrics are unique.
Instead of feeling like I’m listening to an album about a woman pouring out her sorrows, it feels like a party album. Of course, as usual, she’s singing about exes, (I’m looking at you Jake Gyllenhaal,) but there is something fresh about it. If you’re looking to fall in love with her music all over again, this is the album to do it with.
The fact that Ed Sheeran is featured on this album makes it so much better for me. His music is outstanding. Looking for a new musician? Definitely check him out! His lyrics are so beautiful and meaningful — a lot like this album.
“State of Grace” is the first song on the track list and my current favorite. As I listen to the album more frequently, I know that will probably change. “We Are Never Getting Back Together” was the first single of the album. Her video for that is a little kooky, but still entertaining.
Haven’t listened to that one yet? Check out the video for “We Are Never Getting Back Together” below!
