Taylor Swift reflects on 'RED': 'My true breakup album'

Recommended Posts



It’s official: Taylor Swift’s RED is her heartbreak record. Or in her own words, it captured “pure, absolute, to the core, heartbreak” like none of her albums before or since. TayTay discusses her recollections on her fourth album for a new feature by Rolling Stone and Apple Music on the entertainment magazine’s list of 500 Greatest Albums. “I look back on this as my true breakup album, every other album has flickers of different things,” she says in an audio grab. “But this was an album that I wrote specifically about pure, absolute, to the core, heartbreak.”

It might have been a painful time for Taylor, but boy Swifties love the album. Released in 2012, Swift’s first foray into pop debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart (with 1.21 million first week sales) and finished the year as the second best-selling album. It was also Swift’s first chart leader in the U.K., and it ruled surveys in Canada, Australia and elsewhere. Listen to the snippet below.

i remember it all too well   

Red was definitely the album that shifted her direction, for sure.

I wonder if we get the re-recordings soon.
