Taylor Swift, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”
Released via a web chat conducted yesterday, “We Are Never…” is the first taste of Swift’s upcoming fourth record (due out October 22nd). It took 3 hours for the song to be sitting at the top of the iTunes charts.
The track leans heavily to the pop realm (it was co-written by Max Martin, of Katy Perry fame), with a crunchy clap track cutting under some super-shiny guitars, but it’s the lyrical prowess of Swift that pulls it along, as she takes her scythe to an ex, and herself- “And you would hide away and find your peace of mind/ With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine.”
(Apologies for the audio, it was the best I could find…)
