October 22.

It hasn't even been two years since the last one, so that's awesome. You've got to be prolific in pop.

Oooooooh, guys. The lead single is easily her most blatant attempt at a radio hit yet. Not entirely sure how I feel about it. It's silly, and super poppy, and childish, but it does have some zing and a big chorus. Probably will do very well, but I don't know. It's called "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

I just kind of feel that it sounds a bit too much like a number of other pop artist's throwaway radio singles. Only heard it twice, though. And, with sixteen tracks on this beast, I'm sure there will be plenty of tunes that feel a bit more distinct, more in the singer/songwriter vein and less superficial.

I do suddenly have a strong hankering to listen to it again, though. Uh oh.

I will say, mobvok got his wish.

He had mentioned that, on the next album, he wanted to see Taylor ditch the lame cursive font that she's been using on her album covers. And she did! The album cover for Speak Now was probably the only thing that I didn't love about that entire project, and this one is a huge improvement. Very happy with it. I'll try to find a good quality picture of it.

I'm slightly concerned that she's enlisting outside songwriters for this one, but maybe she wanted to branch out her subject matter or something. This is supposed to be a darker, more intense record, hence the title.

Cool. That you remember that, and that it's not that.

Urf, Martin and Shellback? They're really talented, but I was hoping she'd escape their axis since it seems like half the top 100 hits are being written by Martin/Shellback/Dr Luke.

Album cover is stunning.

Yeah, I hope this is the only Max Martin co-write on the album.

I have an idea of what she was going for. Speak Now was massively successful in terms of album sales, but it didn't really have a BIG, inescapable radio hit. "Never Ever" is definitely her brash attempt at getting one. So it makes sense to hire Martin.

Like I hinted at earlier, I have a feeling that this single will end up being very misleading once we look at the album as a whole. I'm like Bart Scott for the other fifteen tracks on the album. Only two months away. Hopefully she does a little Speak Now action and drops a couple more promo songs leading up to the release date.

Taylor is pumping out the records, I'll be interested to see how this one turns out. I kind of really liked Speak Now when it first came out and then some of the songs I grew tired of. But started to like the second half of the album a bit more.

itunes is dangling a link to the single on the storefront main page like a shiny lure, but also telling me the content can't be previewed/loaded because it's not available.

There isn't an official version out yet. It will be on iTunes and something called Google Play at some point later tonight.

She played it over the speakers during her webchat a couple hours ago, so that's floating around, but it's really shoddy quality.
