I loved Red but definitely thought it was a bit too pop for Taylor, which is what's scaring me about this new album. If there's a White Horse or Cold Like You on this album though I will be more than happy. I think...
Not too happy about it being described as VERY poppy, but I have all faith in Taylor to retain her roots and stick to her guns. I doubt there's anyone in the industry capable of swaying her from what she wants to do.
The description of the song basically sounds like they're talking about We Are Never... (minus the horns obviously.) Couple that with the promo image, and the way the single/album cover is being revealed in a live stream, it all seems to be a repeat of Red. That's not necessarily a bad thing.
I'm very intrigued by this... Although I'm somewhat disappointed that this song isn't about love... I essentially come to Taylor for love songs... However, if she has reworked Mariah's song (she hasn't, of course) then I'm totally here for that!
If this turns out to be a hot mess (it won't) then at least we have Hilary Duff's new single to turn to, that's practically a Swift song.
