Taylor Swift premieres new album's title track 'Red'

Country-pop superstar Taylor Swift treated her fans to the first listen of her forthcoming new album's title track, 'Red', this morning (October 1).

She unveiled the song, as promised, on Good Morning America earlier today and explained the inspiration for it was the difficulty of moving on from a situation that you are emotionally invested in:

"I wrote this song about the fact that some things are just hard to forget because the emotions involved with them were so intense and, to me, intense emotion is red."

Lyrically, it deals a lot with the repercussions of heartbreak and includes the lines: "Losing him is blue, like I'd never known/ Missing him was dark grey, all alone/ Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met/ But loving him was red." 'Red' is due to be released on October 22 and you can watch her talk about the title track below:
