Taylor Swift 'Red' Title Song Released (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Taylor Swift has released yet another new song off her upcoming album, Red. This time, it's the title track, "Red."

"Loving him was red," Swift sings on the song, which is about getting over a guy. Some selected lyrics:

Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead end street

Faster than the wind

Passionate as sin, ended so suddenly

Loving him is like trying to change your mind

Once you’re already flying through the free fall

Like the colors in autumn

So bright just before they lose it all

Swift premiered a snippet of "Red" on Good Morning America on Monday. "I wrote this song about the fact that some things are just hard to forget because the emotions involved with them were so intense, and to me, intense emotion is red," she said.

While not as much of a Top-40 banger as "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" -- and not a ballad like "Begin Again" -- this latest Swift song seems destined for heavy airplay. Take a listen above, whether you're red or blue.

Red is out on Oct. 22.
