Taylor Swift “Red” Video Debuts
What better way to cap off a successful stadium tour than with a video that compiles all the highlights? Debuting this week, that’s what the video for Taylor Swift’s latest single “Red” seems to do.
Compared to the dubstep-influenced “I Knew You Were Trouble” and the poppier “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Red” veers back around to Swift’s country roots, offering something more palatable for genre purists. Along with the music, the video that surfaced on July 3 splices together several clips of Swift standing on a stadium stage and singing to the crowd, all while backing musicians play on red rhinestone-covered instruments.
If you haven’t had a chance to see the video, watch it below:
Red continues Swift’s ascent of success. Out in October 2012, the album has since sold 3.723 million copies in the U.S. and 6 million worldwide, along with producing multiple successful singles. The singer’s album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and turned out to be her first U.K. charts-topping release, as well.
While Swift winds down her tour, which ends officially in September 2013, she has plans already to start recording a follow-up – although, as revealed in a recent interview, she may take about two years to write, record, and release it.
