Taylor Swift has debuted a new song, performed the title track for her forthcoming album live for the first time and released the track listing for said album. First, Swift released “I Knew You Were Trouble” to iTunes today after debuting a snippet on GMA yesterday. Fair warning, country fans will have a hard time accepting this song as country. It’s more Britney Spears than Dolly Parton. Next, Swift performed “Red” for the first time in London at an awards show. Being the gracious lady she is, Swift asked permission from fans to play the song for the first time live. Check out the new song and the “Red” performance below. And lastly, the complete 16 song track listing for “Red” was released. Ten tracks Taylor wrote herself, and she receives co-writing credit on the other six. “Red” will be officially released October 22nd.
