Taylor Swift releases new single

 

Taylor Swift, “Ronan”

Red

Premiered at the Stand Up To Cancer Benefit a few days ago, the second single from Taylor Swift’s upcoming record, Red, channels a mother’s heartbreak as she watches her son succumb to the disease.

The soft bed of twangy guitar and piano cushions Swift’s fragile vocals as she tells the true story of Ronan Thompson, a 3 year old boy who Swift learned about through the blog his mother was writing at the time, and who died of neuroblastoma in 2011.
