Taylor Swift‘s highly-anticipated fourth studio album will be titled Red, and will be released on October 22.
“I’ve been working on it for two years and am so proud of it,” the country superstar told fans worldwide as she unveiled the album’s cover art: a profile of the blond beauty sporting her signature bright red lipstick and a hat that casts a shadow over her face.
The singer-songwriter explains Red is also the title of a highly personal song on the album. It seemed like a no-brainer for her to title the album after that tune, as its lyrics encompass the entire theme of the project.
“Thinking about what that means to me and all the different emotions that are written about on this album — they’re all pretty much about the tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years,” she notes. “All those emotions — spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion — in my mind, all those emotions are red. There’s nothing in between; there is nothing beige about any of those feelings.”
Red will have a whopping 16 tracks, for which Taylor jokingly thanked her record label for being “really, really nice” to let her do. She also hints there may be even more bonus tracks.
“I wrote so many songs for this album, it was really difficult to choose which ones would make it,” she explains. “I ended up having to pick from between 30 to 35 songs that I had written that I really wanted to make an album.”
