Taylor Swift’s new album is called RED: ‘I got to work with some of my absolute favorite people in music so this is album is full of co-writers. The people that I worked with, I feel like were incredible and lived up to what I thought they were.’
Her Ed Sheeran duet which was written while they sat on a trampoline will appear on the album. ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,’ which she said is about her ex-boyfriend. Taylor said the song was born while she was in the studio with songwriters Max Martin and Johan Shellback and a friend of her ex’s, she declined to name names, walked in.
‘He starts talking about how he’s heard we were getting back together and that was not the case. When he leaves, Max and Johan are like, ‘so what’s the story behind that?’ And so I start telling them the story of break up, get back together, break up, get back together, just, ugh, the worst. Max says, ‘this is what we’re writing. We’re writing this song,’ and I picked up the guitar and just started singing, ‘we are never–’ It just happened so fast. It was so much fun.’
