Happy Red Day!
On October 22, 2012, Taylor Swift released her fourth album into the world. The fiery, monochromatic LP marked the singer-songwriter’s first official foray into a wide of sonic palettes she hadn’t yet explored on the expertly-crafted country-pop of her first three records — from dabbling in the dubstep of “I Knew You Were Trouble” and the arena rock of “State of Grace” to the Max Martin-produced bubblegum pop of “22” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
While her newest album Lover is full of sunshine and summery vibes, the superstar recently revealed during her NPR Tiny Desk Concert that Red is the album she associates most often with fall. And seeing as Tuesday (Oct. 22) marks the seventh anniversary of that album’s release, it’s time to decide once again which Taylor Swift album is your favorite!
Do you prefer the 80s-inspired pop sheen of 1989? The dark cityscapes and bold bravado of Reputation? The warm glow of Lover?
