Taylor Swift Releases New Single, 'I Knew You Were Trouble,' Off 'Red' Album (AUDIO)
Judging by her own songs, Taylor Swift has the worst luck when it comes to relationships. First, she falls for a clingy indie rock enthusiast ("We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"), and then she's singing a sad song into her coffee cup ("Begin Again"), only to fall for a Maserati-driving heartbreaker ("Red").
Now, she's taking the blame for her bad luck with her new single, "I Knew You Were Trouble" -- a track about falling for someone you know is bad for you. The song, which Swift has described as "chaotic," is her first foray into dubstep, and with one of her catchiest hooks to date, it could definitely pay off for the country-pop crooner.
“I knew you were trouble when you walked in/So shame on me now/Flew me to places I’d never been/Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground," she sings on the chorus.
What else can Swift's fans expect from her forthcoming album Red?
Swift also dropped the 16-song track list for the album, which includes her duet with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran ("Everything Has Changed"). There is still one mystery duet, however, that she has yet to reveal.
At the time, Swift even dished on her latest single. “There’s a song called ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’... It’s really intense and I’m so excited for people to hear it because it’s about [when] you meet someone and you just know, ‘Oh, you’re bad — why am I walking towards you anyway?” she said.Jake Gyllenhaal, Will Anderson and John Mayer.
