We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together video premiere! New Red tracks revealed

Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who just had to have power issues minutes before the video premiere, we’re glad that the video for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together is out… but actually we don’t have it for you in this post 😦 Sorry! MTV will have it first exclusively for a while longer before other sites like YouTube finally can have it online. So, what do we know about this video? Well, it’s another breakup. Except this time, there is no reconciliation. Like ever.

Update: The video is now available on YouTube officially!

However this is not by any extension of the imagination a sad video. The Princess In Red starts in pajamas and her glasses throwing the guy out and then celebrating with a band of thieves in rip- wait, no… I mean a band of woodland creatures. It’s the Agency alright. Not quite sure if Grant Mickelson is a bear or a cat. Caitlin Evanson is a squirrel. Paul Sidoti is a donkey. Amos J. Heller will later appear as a cheeky monkey. Mike Meadows is a very chilled… woodchuck, perhaps? I can’t tell what Al Wilson and David Cook are just yet. No signs of Elizabeth Huett or Daniel Sadownick, but that just means they couldn’t attend. I keep checking out the clips hoping they’re somewhere in there.

Attending the party are bunch of high-jumping guests. Expect everyone to have the dancing moves down by the time the tour dates are announced. No, the tour dates are not announced yet! Breathe! Sorry I mentioned that… you ok? Anyway, the video is a lot of fun and I’m glad Taylor has a dance tune for her tour. Which is not happening yet. Be cool. Like Mike Meadows 🙂

After the premiere, the Sparkly Dressed hung around to get some questions from MTV News’ Sway Calloway. During the questions, she did revealed two more tracks. So here’s what we know so far:

  • Everything Has Changed is the duet featuring Ed Sheeran. Rolling Stones already described it as “acoustic”
  • I Knew You Were Trouble is a song that is “intense” according to Taylor’s description. It’s also the song she answered with when Sway asked her if there’s a song in there that she thought people would never expect from her.
  • State Of Grace, described as a U2-style rock song on the Rolling Stones article.
  • A dubstep inspired song, still nameless, also mentioned on the Rolling Stones article.
  • Obviously, Red.

Update! The video for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together is now up officially!

Shades of Red: Latest details from Tay’s fourth album and a Never Ever sneak peek

(Source: Big Machine Records)

Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still just one guy who’s about to go crazy as we get closer and closer to October, we’re excited about tomorrow’s premiere but concerned about region locks. I am not fond of the word “exclusive” and even less when it applies to limit premieres and videos by country boundaries. All this to say, I hope we can see the premiere outside the USA tomorrow.

Thankfully to tide us over, Rolling Stone is sharing an preview article of their interview with the Princess in Red talking about the eagerly expected Red album. Talking about the relationships upon which she was inspired for the many tracks (sixteen by her own admission) she reveals a bit of turmoil.

“I went through a few roller coasters,”says the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar. “Trying to chronicle each step of the way was challenging, because you go to some really dark places with the lyrics. Then in the next track, you’re talking about how amazing it is to meet somebody new.”

She has gone the opposite direction of Speak Now by collaborating with new producers and artists such as Max Martin and Dan Martin (frequent Adele collaborator). “I felt like an apprentice,” confesses T-Swizzle. “They taught me so much about melodic sense, and they let me do what I love, which is the lyrics.”

Big surprises coming up? There’s a mention of the new track State of Grace, which Rolling Stone describes as “a howling, U2-style epic with reverb-drenched guitars.” There will be an acoustic duet with Ed Sheeran. Another track is described as a dubstep-inspired bass breakdown. I’m looking forward to seeing Amos J. Heller shine on that one when they play it live.

“I know general things about love,” says the Enchantress. “How to treat people well, what you deserve and when to walk away. Other than that, love is a complete mystery – and that’s why I like to write about it.”

You can read up more on the article preview at Rolling Stone. The full interview will be available on the September 13 edition of Rolling Stone magazine. Thirteen. There’s that number again. Someone should ask the Queen of Sparks if it means anything to her. Just kidding.

Oh, and don’t watch this. Just don’t. It’s a 13-second sneak peek of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together from CMT via YouTube. Do NOT press play on this clip!

Watch on YouTube

You watched it anyway, huh?

The premiere starts tomorrow, with a half-hour special on CMT with the Enchantress talking to hosts Katie Cook, Evan Farmer and some lucky fans in-studio to discuss her newest hit single at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT. Then don’t forget to tune in as Tay joins Sway Calloway on MTV First: Taylor Swift to premiere her video for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together at 7:49 ET/PT.

The Princess in Red will attend the 2012 Canadian Country Music Awards!

Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy who’s happy to report that the Sparkly Dressed will actually be appearing in Canada – not only this year, but next month, we’re ecstatic to report she’s receiving the CCMA’s inaugural Generation award for going “beyond the borders of the country music genre onto an international stage.”

According to CTV News, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar will be the first recipient of this award. She’s been the top selling performer since 2010, according to board chairman Ted Ellis. I double-checked that on the CCMA website: Speak Now won for the Top Selling Album in 2011. Fearless won two years in a row, in 2009 and 2010.

The other great cool, amazing and incredible news is that she’s been confirmed to attend. The performers scheduled for that night include Dean Brody, Terri Clark, Emerson Drive, Johnny Reid, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies. No, Taylor is not scheduled to perform.

The CCMA Awards will take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 9. They will be broadcasted live across Canada on Sunday September 9th at 8 p.m. on CBC, with encore airings on CMT (Canada) starting at 10 p.m. E.T.

MTV News announced the Enchantress will be performing at the 2012 Video Music Awards. She will perform We Are  Never Ever Getting Back Together (or WANEGBT for all you Taylorgeeks) live for the first time.
